The Macao Cultural Centre, under the auspices of the Cultural Affairs Bureau, presents Matilda The Musical, an electrifying theatrical tale celebrating the defiant spirit of children, led by an extraordinary young girl. Co-organized by GWB Entertainment and CCM this masterpiece, conceived by the Royal Shakespeare Company, will delight the whole family with the inspirational story of an astonishing girl whose talents are constantly belittled by her cruel parents and the terrifying school headmistress. Dreaming of a better life, the young Matilda uses her vivid imagination to challenge the odds and take destiny into her own hands.
