Musical Theatre: A Community Endeavor

“Every single life, every new life is a miracle.” – from Matilda, the musical

Why Matilda?

At BVCS we have an opportunity to explore the world of theatre through singing, dancing, acting, creating sets, working with new technologies and lights, costuming, etc. Through participation in the musical, students, staff, and other volunteers get a unique opportunity to build relationships that extend beyond the classroom.  

Matilda, the musical is adapted from Roald Dahl’s novel of the same name. The story follows Matilda, aged 5, who suffers from the unfortunate truth that her parents don’t care much about her. And when she goes to school, she discovers that the principal, Miss Trunchbull, blatantly disdains and disregards the children as well. However, Miss Honey is a kind and generous teacher who loves the children deeply, cares for their well-being, and wants to educate them properly. Eventually, after being inspired by Matilda’s daring, the children are able to escape the tyranny of the Trunchbull, finding justice at long last.

This story is a reflection of our world in which darkness and evil are represented by oppressive, selfish, and unfeeling adults, while beauty and hope are represented by wonderful adults who set examples of what it means to love unconditionally. Ultimately, Matilda is about the power of justice and hope. From it we can learn to stand with the disenfranchised, that all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and that hope can be found even in the darkest of places.

Matilda is an expression of our mission statement: that we teach students to appreciate (the arts), understand and evaluate the world (that there is darkness, and hope will overcome it) as they grow in faith and knowledge, so that they can bring the healing power of Christ to all areas of life.

Community Connections

It takes an army of people to put together a show of this scope. Therefore, it is our hope that as many people from our school community can be involved as possible. We are looking for people to sew costumes, source and gather props, build and paint sets, advertise and sell tickets, help with hair and makeup, etc. If you are interested in being a part of this show, please click the button below.
