Auburn Community Players present “Matilda The Musical” at Auburn Ave Theater for 11 performances in March.

Show times are 7 p.m. March 6, 7, 13, 14, 20 and 21, with 2 o’clock matinees on March 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22.

Matilda’s courage and cleverness save the day, her friends, and their school. Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She is unloved by her cruel parents, but impresses her schoolteacher, the lovable Miss Honey. As Miss Honey begins to recognize and appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality, they must contend with the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. The headmistress hates children and loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could just be the school pupils’ saving grace.

Tickets are $17 regular, $14 student/senior (advance) or $22 regular, $19 student/senior at the door. The box office, at 10 Auburn Ave, opens one hour prior to each performance.

Order online, or call Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation at 253-931-3043, or pick up in person at the Auburn Community & Event Center, 910 Ninth St. SE during office hours.

All tickets subject to $1 processing fee.
