Approximately 40 students from grades four through eight will take the stage at the West Tisbury School this weekend for performances of Matilda The Musical Jr. The production is directed by Barbara Binder with musical direction by Mary Alice McCann and choreography by Jen Maxner.

The original story written by Roald Dahl is a gleeful ode to childhood anarchy and the power of imagination.

Performances take place Friday, March 10 and Saturday, March 11 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, March 12 at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $20 per family, $10 per adult and $5 for students and seniors.
