The children are rising up. Join the revolt in this Broadway Junior adaptation of the Tony Award-winning hit!

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.

Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence… and special powers! She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR. is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

All Matinees Are Sensory-Friendly!

Our Sensory-Friendly performances are the same show that you can see on any other day, we are just adding a few accommodations to make sure all of our friends feel included! Changes might included regulated sound with less spikes, keeping the house lights at half, designating an area where guests can stand up and move around as needed, and activities in the lobby if anyone needs a break! Thank you for your understanding.
