POSTPONED - Matilda in Concert
Danny DeVito narrates live!—New Jersey Symphony at the Movies
The Matilda in Concert performance originally scheduled for September 9 at State Theatre New Jersey has been postponed due to the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) strike.
Everyone involved in this production was very much looking forward to performing together this September, and we are disappointed to have to postpone it, but we look forward to holding the performance on a future date once the strike has concluded.
We are working with the artists and venue on a new date for the performance and will communicate the new date once it is confirmed. Ticketholders will be contacted by New Jersey Symphony Patron Services. For ticketholder questions, call 1.800.ALLEGRO (255.3476) or email email@example.com.
Danny DeVito narrator
David Newman conductor
New Jersey Symphony
Acclaimed actor, producer and director Danny DeVito will join famed film composer David Newman and the New Jersey Symphony in a very special performance of Matilda in Concert at State Theatre New Jersey. Come see New Jersey native DeVito narrate the film, while Newman’s enchanting score is performed live to picture!
Based on Roald Dahl’s award-winning book and directed by Danny DeVito, from a screenplay by Nicholas Kazan & Robin Swicord, Matilda is the story of a little girl (Mara Wilson) who loves books and wants to go to school. Belittled by mean parents and terrorized by a disparaging school headmistress, Matilda uses her secret telekinetic gift to stand up for herself, her friends, and the lovely Ms. Honey. This humorous and touching coming-of-age story will have audience members young and old humming in their seats!
