(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Music Mountain Theatre will continue their 2021 Summer Season with Matilda premiering July 23rd. The show will run for 4 weekends with performances ending on August 15th. Matilda is an extraordinary five-year-old with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind whose talents are constantly belittled by her cruel parents and headmistress. Dreaming of a better life for herself, she dares to take a stand against these oppressive forces, takes her destiny into her own hands, and helps her favorite teacher reclaim her life.
The role of Matilda will be shared by Giana Griffiths and Lucy Spiegel with each performing at different shows. Giana, of New Hope, PA feels honored to play the role saying “I was very upset to have the show postponed (due to Covid), but even more excited to hear about it opening back up again! it was a long wait, but very worth it!” Her favorite past roles at MMT include A Christmas Carol, her first MainStage production, and Annie, “because it’t so much fun”.
Lucy Spiegel, of Doylestown, PA is thankful for the chance to play one of her “dream roles”. Lucy spent time during the past year participating in virtual events and classes but says “there is nothing like performing live theatre”. Some of Lucy’s favorite shows include Annie, Come From Away, School of Rock, Dear Evan Hansel, and Waitress.
