“Matilda Jr.” is an ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination. Its protagonist is a girl who dreams of a better life and inspires the children around her to go after it. Rebellion is thus nigh, and audiences soon root for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.
Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs, and comic and memorable characters, “Matilda Jr.” features talented teens and youngsters, including Chloe Arneson, Annabel Connors, Henry Decker, Jackson Decker, Jimmy DeLeon, Sadie Doebler, Romy Files, Colleen Fitzmaurice, Hartley Hansen, Emma Krenn, Erin Mulliken, Ada O’Donnell, Hunter Olvera, Joe Rader, Avery Ragsly, Ryder Portnoy, Maya Sebesteyn, Luna Sherman, Tallulah Steele, Cassidy Sullivan and Sydney Tulevski.
