Joliet West High School's Vocal Music Department invites the public to their 2020 Spring Musical, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda the Musical, on Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14 at 7:00 PM and on Sunday, March 15 at 2:00 PM in the Joliet West Auditorium, located on 401 N Larkin Avenue in Joliet. The musical is inspired by Roald Dahl's popular novel, Matilda, that tells the inspiring story of a magical young girl who dreams of a better life.

Music Theatre International describes Matilda as a show "packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs ... Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination."

Tickets will go on sale to the public on Saturday, February 1, 2020. Advance tickets can be purchased at www.jtwestchoir.org for $7.50. Walk up sales are also available at the door for $10.00. Matilda is a family -friendly show. The expected run time is two hours and fifteen minutes, including intermission.

Featuring a talented cast, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp. The Choir Parent's Association will be holding a 50/50 raffle at each showing with proceeds benefiting the young performers of the Vocal Music Department.

"Matilda the Musical is a fantastical story with captivating songs. But, there's also an important message to take away. Matilda's story shows kids how to figure out what's important and to take a stand against things that are unfair in the world around them," says Tim DeBoer, choir director at Joliet Township High School West Campus and the director for the show. "We invite everyone in the community to come enjoy the show."

Matilda is a wonderful story, which reminds us all to be kind while treating the audience to a beautiful collection of high-energy songs. This show reaches out to the child in all of us as we remember our own school days, good and bad. For additional questions, contact Mr. Tim DeBoer at 815-727-6906.
