Matilda at Walnut Street Theater. Great theater for the holidays. The kids love this!
Must see theater - Based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book of the same name, Matilda follows Matilda Wormwood, a bright little girl who immerses herself in books. Matilda is discarded and belittled by her dimwitted parents—her father insists on calling her a boy and harps on her “stupidity” for preferring reading to watching the telly—and her hostile headmistress, the outrageous and wicked Miss Trunchbull. 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. Great production at Walnut Street Theater

Explore the human condition of racism, interracial marriage and politics. Production worth seeing. The cast is phenomenal and Ms Norwood direction is impeccable!
Fun Home is a musical adapted by Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori from Alison Bechdel's 2006 graphic memoir of the same name. A fresh and brilliantly told by a favorite comic artist. It is marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, homosexual angst, and great books. Nominated for 12 Tony Awards and won 5. Now playing at the Kelsey Theater at Mercer County Community College. This is thought provoking, poignant and undeniably moving. This fabulous production is produced by Peter Labriola and directed by Kat Ross Kline. Must See Show!!
