ABOUT THE SHOW — Thirty plays. Sixty minutes. And a constant reminder: time is of the essence. Above the stage: a clothesline with numbered cards. On each card’s flip side: a play title. YOU guide the bullet train. What’ll it be? Yell a number. Any number. Down comes the card, up goes the play. Ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom. It’s fast. It’s furious. It’s neo-futuristic tragicomedy. Buckle up, Baby … for a blindingly wild ride.

“Saturday Night Live
… compressed together, and on crack …
wildly inventive and creative.”
— newtheatrecorps.com —

“[Not] mere comedy …
introspective and probing …
compelling and innovative.”
— Washington Square News —

“Satirical, serious, and surreal …
lightning-quick … the mood veers from
laugh-out-loud silly
to emotionally touching.”
The New York Times —

Funny … sad … just plain weird.”
— Center Stage Chicago —

ABOUT THE SHOW — Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly-lovable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives as Miss Honey begins to not only recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing. 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!

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

ABOUT THE SHOW — Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo, who longs to explore the world beyond their anemone home. But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean. With the help of lovable characters such as optimistic Dory, laid-back sea turtle Crush, and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves.
