Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly lovable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just 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 be the school pupils' saving grace!

Corie Bratter - Actress who can play a woman in her early 20s - any ethnicity. Lots of lines and on stage for whole play. Wide eyed, optimistic and full of hope for the future. She is childlike in her view of the world - seeing only the good in people and in a ratty apartment.

Telephone Repairman - male 40+ any ethnicity. Dry humor, not in great physical shape. 2 small but hilarious scenes.

Paul Bratter - Actor who van play a man in early to mid-20s - any ethnicity. Lots of lines and on stage for most of play. A practical and conscientious man married to a free spirit. Young lawyer - dresses conservatively. 

Mother - Female 45-60 any ethnicity. Supporting role but a good sized part. Tired, run down a bit. The spark is still in her though. She uses self pity for attention but not over the top. 

Victor Velasco - Male 50+ any ethnicity. Eccentric, colorful, big talker. But lovable. Supporting role and the catalyst for how events unfold.
