Reclusive, but with an ever-growing imagination and sharp mind, and with a caring protector in her teacher Miss Honey, Matilda dreams of a better life, daring to take a stand against unjust forces and to grasp her destiny in her own, tiny hands. Seats are located in the first mezzanine. Bus leaves Lot D at 10:00 a.m. and departs after the 2:00 p.m. show.
