Students delight with Matilda the Musical

Bridgewater School production of Matilda the Musical

Matilda is a story of hope, strength and overcoming adversity and, after two long years of restrictions due to the pandemic, senior students revelled in the opportunity to perform their production of Matilda the Musical to a delighted live audience.

A fantastic celebration of drama, music and togetherness, this musical adaptation of the beloved children’s book of the same name provided a wonderful showcase for the truly talented individuals and a real treat for audiences.

Said Mrs Whitley, Head of Drama at Bridgewater School “Despite their lives being turned upside down, the amazingly talented young people in this show came out of their comfort zones to take on the challenge of performing for a live audience (for the first time in a very long time!). From the leading principle roles, to the ensemble, the lighting and sound engineers and everyone else working behind the scenes – we are so proud of this fabulous company – their courage, tenacity and talent.”

Our highly experienced teaching team is committed to bringing hidden talent and undiscovered potential out into the light.
