Beyond Orange County
Matilda the Musical comes to Southern California
Remember reading Matilda by Roald Dahl and then watching the film later? Well… now you can take the chiclets to see the musical too!!! Matilda the Musical is playing now at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa. I’m super excited to be taking the nine year old to see it because he’s a fan of the film and the book, and Segerstrom Center is the perfect kid-friendly venue to enjoy the musical.
