In the Tony Award-winning hit adapted from Dahl's beloved book, Matilda is an extraordinary little girl who dares to take a stand and change her destiny. When she has finally had enough of her unscrupulous parents and tyrannical headmistress, she enlists the help of her friends — and favorite teacher Miss Honey — and bravely takes matters into her own hands to become the biggest little hero. Zach stages the musical on this Tuesday as a sensory-friendly performance with spaced-out seating and a more relaxed theater environment.
