The musical follows the general storyline of the Matilda movie with Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman that most people have seen.

The musical is based on a book by Roald Dahl.  It is set in England and focuses on the character, Matilda, a brilliant and spunky child who is born into a family that is a bit less brilliant.  Her Dad is a used car salesman who has a “flexible” take on honesty.  Her mom is an amateur ballroom dancer more into looks than intelligence.

Matilda is sent to a school run by Ms. Trunchbull – a terrifying former hammer throwing champion.  She also meets a wonderful teacher who understands her, Miss Honey.

The message of the story is that everyone has the power to change their own story, and that being “little” is no excuse for not standing up for yourself.  One of the best lyrics is “Even if you’re little you can do a lot, you mustn’t let a little thing like little stop you.”

The musical is both hilarious and touching as it follows Matilda and her friends as they stand up for themselves against some wayward adults in their lives.

Callie McIntyre Host


“It was a pleasure to have Calli McIntyre host this week’s show. Calli was a past guest in Sept. 2017. I offered her the chance to host her own show because I knew she would excel. I don’t think this charismatic young lady, who is a junior at Pinecrest, ever met a challenge she didn’t wrap her arms around. She organized the show, the synopsis, the guests and the content without any help from me. She achieves everyday. I’m very proud to present Calli’s show.” – Bill Sahadi This week’s segment of All Things Moore County includes a conversation about the arts in Moore County schools. Featured guests, Pinecrest theatre educator, Adam Faw, and Pinecrest senior and stage manager, Megan Bankos, are interviewed by Calli Brielle McIntyre, who is Miss Moore County’s Outstanding Teen 2018 and Bill Sahadi‘s protégé. As you will see and hear, Moore County schools are filled with talented artists from all corners of the county. In fact, across the state, Union Pines, Pinecrest, and North Moore are referred to as the “Holy Trinity” of theatre departments. Adam and Megan give a preview about upcoming shows and also important information on how people can give much needed donations to these amazing programs.
