Matilda the Musical

On Thursday 27th September (2018), members of Drama and Theatre Club visited the Palace Theatre in Manchester to see the Royal Shakespeare Company’s amazing production of ‘Matilda the Musical’.

The children had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the show.  As usual, the behaviour of Drama and Theatre Club children was exemplary.
