Orpheus Musical Theatre presents Matilda the Musical at Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe November 22 to December 1.


Ottawa – November 8, 2019 – Based on the book by beloved author Roald Dahl, Matilda is the story of a gifted young girl that inspires her browbeaten classmates to revolt against their cruel headmistress. Tim Minchin’s music and ingenious lyrics underscore Dahl’s outrageous characters in Dennis Kelly’s stage adaptation of this miraculous story. Ottawa audiences will be charmed once again by home-grown spitfire Sophia Pierce in the title role. The 10-year-old Pierce, who impressed the critics in last year’s production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, will share the lead with talented newcomer Shelby Shannon-Caines, 12, who will take the stage for half of the performances.  Musical theatre lovers will just have to go twice!


Orpheus Musical Theatre has been bringing live musical performances to Ottawa audiences since 1906. A registered charity, Orpheus is proud to produce professional-quality musical theatre while fostering the development of local amateur talent.    



November 22 – December 1, 2019 (7:30 p.m. / 2 p.m. Sunday matinées)

Extra performance just added – Saturday, November 30 at 2 p.m.
