Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, Exeter Township Senior High School will present, "Matilda the Musical," 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. The musical will be performed at 7pm on March 30, March 31 and April 1 with a 2pm matinee on April 2 in the auditorium at the high school, located at 201 East 37th Street in Reiffton.
The musical stars senior Summer Turczynski as Matilda, a girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers who becomes her school's saving grace. Junior Daniel Pack and sophomore Allison Applegate star as Matilda's cruel parents; senior Regina Ramirez-Sastre plays Matilda's teacher, the lovable Miss Honey; and sophomore Ryan Claudfelter plays Miss Agatha Trunchbull, the school's mean headmistress who hates children and loves punishing schoolchildren.
