PETER AND THE STARCATCHER
AND ROALD DAHL’S MATILDA THE MUSICAL
BRINGS SUMMERTIME MAGIC TO SOL CHILDREN THEATRE
If you’re looking for magical, imaginative, family friendly theatre this summer, look no further than Boca Raton. Sol Children Theatre will present Peter and the Starcatcher and Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical in repertory style, now on stage through August 4, 2019.
Both productions will star the talented young actors who are participating in the company’s Summer Repertory Theatre program.
It started out as an exciting notion, doing Summer Repertory, and then it developed into feasible programming. Two shows sharing a Black Box Theatre isn’t easy, but it certainly presents an incredible opportunity for theatre magic to take place. And what better shows than to choose ones that revolve around magic! Watching these shows evolve is truly magical.
This Tony Award -winning Peter and the Starcatcher brings back the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (also known as Peter Pan). From pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair, and the bonds of duty, friendship, and love.
Inspired by the genius of Roald Dahl, the multiple award-winning Matilda the Musical is a captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination, and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life.
A story about children, their perception of the world and circumstances around them, and the power of imagination and kindness. The musicals are brought to life with the young performers of Sol Children Theatre now on stage through July 14 and July 26-28, 2019. Tickets are $20, for adults, $15 for children, 11 years and younger. Sol Children Theatre is located at 3333 North Federal Highway, Boca Raton. For more information call 561-447-8829.
