On Thursday, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Canadian production of Matilda The Musical had its official Opening Night at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto!

Three young actresses alternate playing Matilda, with Hannah Levinson swinging gloriously into action in the title role for the premiere. Jaime MacLean and Jenna Weir make up the rest of the Toronto Matilda trio.

They are joined by the principals (in alphabetical order) Paula Brancati (Miss Honey), Dan Chameroy (Miss Trunchbull), Keisha T. Fraser (Mrs Phelps), Brandon McGibbon (Mr Wormwood) and Darcy Stewart (Mrs Wormwood).

Saw Matilda in Toronto last Thursday and loved it! We all loved Roald Dahl as kids and knew Tim Minchin did the songs and we enjoyed “recognizing” his touch in the show. My sons are in college and we were on a Canada road trip from Indiana. Thanks for a great evening of fun and songs to remember!
