On Wednesday, October 19, 2016, Chisholm Academy staff and students attended the thrilling production of Matilda the Musical, at Toronto’s Ed Mirvish Theatre. Based on the novel by Roald Dahl, Matilda is the story of an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, who dared to take a stand and change her own destiny.

Our students thoroughly enjoyed this amazing production, and described the plot as exciting, humourous, and both dark and cheerful at times. They also enjoyed the quirky special effects, the choreography and costumes, and the opportunity to visit such a magnificent venue as the Ed Mirvish Theatre.

Overall, our students represented Chisholm Academy well on this school trip, and had a wonderful experience!
