N.C. Theatre is bringing "Matilda the Musical," based on the classic novel by Roald Dahl, to Raleigh this week (if you haven't noticed the advertising wrap round the Go Ask Mom page in recent weeks)!
The show runs Tuesday to Sunday at Memorial Hall at the Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh. It's is the winner of 50 international awards, including four Tony Awards, and has been a hit on Broadway. The quick synopsis: "'Matilda' is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny."
I'm excited to share a couple of things:
