Were you also afraid of Mrs Trunchbull, from the movie Matilda? On Saturday, 27 October, students from STAGEkidz, Mary Rowe’s Studio for Young Performers, had the opportunity to go to the Monte Casino Teatro to watch Matilda the Musical.

Matilda the Musical is a stage musical based on the 1988 children’s novel of the same name, by Roald Dahl. The story was later adapted by Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. What an experience!

The children were in awe about the set design, live band and phenomenal singing performances. The talented actors on stage left the audience nailed to their seats.

On Friday, 16 November, the talented learners from STAGEkidz performed their Christmas concert, “A donkey’s tale”, to the Sunday school learners of the St John’s Anglican Church. This is a tale about Jesus’s birth, told by the animals in the stables.
