Matilda Long Graphic


Eastern Shore Repertory Theatre (ESRT) will bring Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical to Henry George Park in Fairhope for the sixth annual Theatre on the Bluff on May 2-4, 2019. Matilda The Musical is directed by Erin Langley with choreography by Matthew Kiel and Chloe Theriot and music direction by Michael Seward.

All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. General Admission gate will open at 6:30 p.m. Patrons should bring their own blanket or lawn chair, and picnics are encouraged. Concessions will also be available for purchase.

Tickets are available online or can be purchased at the gate on the night of the show if space is still available. In the event that a performance must be canceled due to inclement weather, a rain date performance will be held on Sunday, May 5, 2019. All tickets are non-refundable.

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, this Tony Award-winning musical is the 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. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world. ESRT is pleased to produce the Alabama premiere of Matilda The Musical!
