Marquette, MI – (02/25/20) – The Superior Arts Youth Theater is presenting Roald Dahl’s “Matilda The Musical” this week at the Forest Roberts Theatre at Northern Michigan University. SAYT Executive Director Jalina McClain and Avonlea Kuhlman, the show’s lead, joined Mark & Walt in the Morning today to preview the show.
McClain said the production is a roller-coaster ride of a story about a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She has courage and cleverness in equal amounts that could be her classmates’ and other’s saving grace.
Kuhlman talked about playing Matilda and what she has enjoyed so far about the role and how it is expanding her skills as an actor. At the age of 12, she is already a veteran of a series of SAYT productions.
The show runs this Thursday through Sunday and tickets can be purchased through NMU Ticketing.
