This Week in Mal’s World, Mal Vincent previews Matilda, the musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic book. It tells the story of Matilda Wormwood, a young girl with a sharp wit and love for books. With her special brand of ingenuity, she dares to stand against the tyranny of adults who seek to crush her imagination. This multi-Tony award-winning musical provides the perfect opportunity for collaboration between Virginia Stage Company and The Governor’s School for the Arts to highlight our local students alongside some of the top professional actors from around the country.

Matilda is currently playing at the Wells Theatre in Norfolk until June 2. Visit for showtimes and tickets.
