SYNOPSIS:
Matilda Wormwood (played brilliantly by Rosemary Heckard and Everleigh Murphy) is an extraordinary girl who, armed with a sharp mind and vivid imagination dares to take a stand and change her destiny.  She is a genius who is born into a less brilliant family.  Her dad (Mr. Wormwood, played by Justin Vidovic) is a car salesman with a few scruples loose.  Her mom (Mrs. Wormwood, played by Hannah Rose) is an amateur ballroom dancer who values looks over books.  But Matilda is a girl that can read Dostoyevsky in the original Russian!  Things only get worse when Matilda's parents send her to school at the ghastly Crunchem Hall.  There she meets the tyrannical head mistress, Miss Trunchbull (played by Brent Walker).  Faced with these ridiculously rotten circumstances, Matilda bravely decides to take action with the help of her friends and her kind-hearted teacher, Miss Honey (Jill Iverson).  Matilda is a miraculous girl that inspires a little revolution and proves that everyone has the power to change their story.
