THE Nardone Academy in Fife brings you this pleasant musical.

Even while queuing up for the present, Miss Trunchbull (performed by Cole McLaren) was out scouting the viewers and scowling in full character.  

Erin Kempton performs the quiet however tremendous clever Matilda. The star of the present boasts good singing for an distinctive efficiency from Erin. 

The scenes with Matilda and the librarian all through the present are a stunning contact, serving to to interrupt up the scenes and the musical numbers. 

Her dad and mom are performed by Keava Doig and Dylan Weatherup.

The cockney accent and swagger of Mr Wormwood was excellent, while Mrs Wormwood was on par with Rhea Perlmans’ film model, screeching and all. 

A spotlight was Bruce Bogtrotter (Noah Brotherton) and the cake scene.

Not an enormous cake from cook dinner to eat however a cake nonetheless, nonetheless.

It will convey again some reminiscences for the adults within the room after they first noticed the scene within the Danny Devito film or studying the e book for the primary time.

The power from the children within the present is electrical.
