Hi everybody! We over here at CenterStage are going to be doing a little something to get ready for one of our shows this summer: “Matilda”.
I’m sure all of you reading this know what “Matilda” is all about – because of the book, the movie, the musical, or all of the above – but, just for fun, I’m going to be discussing what this book is about.
“Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she’s a nuisance. She expects school to be different, but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull, she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back (spoiler alert). It’ll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves, and Matilda may be just the one to do it!” -“Matilda”
Over the next few months, I will be reading “Matilda,” and I will be posting little summaries periodically based on what I will have read at that point. I will also be discussing what we know about Matilda so far and the characters we have been introduced to in each blog post. A reading schedule has been attached so that you know when to expect a post – or, you can join me and read along!
Until next post,
