Thank you Kimmel Center for supporting Homeroom At Home and our mission. This is a sponsored article whereby we were provided tickets to the show and attended a promotional party.
Nothing like a little rebellion to get some kids’ attention. And so be it… along with the perfect children’s Broadway performance: Matilda The Musical. If it takes a little sass to get children interested in the theater arts… well, I’m all for it. This fun musical comes with some super catchy (parents be warned) sassy songs.
Matilda The Musical is based off of Roald Dahl’s children’s book, Matilda. As summarized by The Guardian the story is “about a smart, easily infuriated little girl who is misunderstood by her parents and loathed by the school’s headmistress. On the other hand her kind and generous teacher, Miss Honey, thinks she is a brilliant academic genius. Matilda has a number of excellent schemes in her head to teach her nasty parents and headmistress a lesson.” Roald Dahl is known for his quirky, imaginative humor that keeps children engaged. I was excited to find this story on our book shelf for a later read (recommended for ages 7-11). By the way, love the review on Kids’ Book Reviews for this title… so be sure to check it out too. And speaking of checking things out, click below for a quick recap of Matilda the Musical.
My daughter and I are looking forward to the Broadway performance of Matilda The Musical, singing all the way there. The performance is held at the Academy of Music from Nov 17th through the 29th. Tickets are discounted 35% using QUIET as the promo code.
Can’t wait to see this! Roald Dahl was one of my favorite authors growing up and I’ve loved introducing his books to my own kids. We’d love to see Matilda brought to life on stage!
I hope you get a chance to see it, Alissa. It was a lot of fun and the team of people behind the scenes really put their hearts into making it Roald’s book on stage. They did an amazing job.
The Kimmel Center is a fantastic venue!!! This play looks really sweet. I wish I could go but I’m no longer living in Philly. Enjoy <3
Agreed, the Kimmel Center rocks. Sorry you will miss this performance here, perhaps it will come your way.
