Tempe events include Tony Award®-wining MATILDA THE MUSICAL at ASU Gammage from February 7-12. Based on the classic children’s book by Roald Dahl, the story follows Matilda Wormwood, a bright little girl who’s mistreated by her dimwitted, cruel parents and hostile headmistress, the wicked Miss Trunchbull. She finds refuge in books and the company of her protective teacher Miss Honey.  Matilda’s fertile imagination and sharp mind along with Miss Honey’s encouragement, enable Matilda to dream of a better life, stand up to unjust forces and find her own destiny.
