Feb 27th - Feb 29th » Broadway Show "Matilda"

The Van Buren Community Players will be performing "Matilda". Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical is the 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. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

Matilda is about a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also 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 thinking up new punishments for 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!

There will be a matinee on Sunday, March. 1st at 2:00pm.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for age 18 and younger.
Sunday only for seniors 65 and older will be $8 for the matinee. 

Tickets available Feb. 3rd at First Iowa State Bank, Keosauqua. Tickets will also be available night of the show at the doors if the show is not sold out.
