Theatre Trip – Matilda, Manchester

In November, the Expressive Arts Faculty ran a theatre trip to see the fabulous West End hit musical ‘Matilda’ at the Palace Theatre in Manchester. There is nothing quite like seeing live theatre, and we were captivated by all aspects of the production.

Miss Trunchbull proved to be hideously entertaining in her treatment of the ‘Revolting Children’ in her care, but, as they say, revenge is sweet and seeing Trunchbull squeal, ‘There’s a newt in my knickers!’ was indeed hilarious.

Throughout we rooted for Matilda, to prove that ‘even if you’re little you can do a lot’. What a wonderful and hopeful message for our youngsters. Thankfully, I’ve never heard our own headteacher, Mr Reynolds, refer to our students as ‘maggots’, so there’ll be no tricks involving newts played on him…for now!
