Matilda, a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers, lives with cruel parents who find her to be a nuisance, a lousy little worm, and a bore. When Matilda enters her first term at school, she captures the attention of Miss Honey, a kind teacher, and the two form a wonderful friendship. Unfortunately, the school is ruled by a tempestuous and mean headmistress named Miss Trunchbull, who hates children and delivers cruel and unjust punishments to all her charges. Matilda is determined to change her story, but will her cleverness and courage be enough to withstand the reign of Miss Trunchbull?

This year Rainbow Dance and Theatre School will be raising money at each performance through our charity raffle for Cancer Research UK for Children and Young People following the unexpected passing of one of our dance mums, Angela Davies, who died shortly after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of Thyroid cancer earlier this year. This wonderful charity is Angela’s charity of choice and holds a special place in her family’s heart.
