The PVPA Conservatory presents its Main Stage production of Matilda The Musical. Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, this Tony Award-winning show is a captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination, and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence, and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher Miss Honey. During her first term at school, the two forge a bond as Miss Honey begins to recognize and appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves to punish those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace! Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs, and an unforgettable star turn for a young actress, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

ANNUAL FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN
Dear Theatre Patron,
PVPA thanks the community for its continued support . Performing arts are an essential part of the culture and community of the South Bay. From dance and music to theatre and the visual arts, the arts give our community a unique means of expression, capturing passions and emotions, and allowing us to explore new ideas, subject matter, and cultures. They bring us joy in every aspect of our lives. That is why the performing arts continue to be vital in the South Bay Community, and why your financial support is a gift to everyone.
