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 loveable 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!

International clown performer, teaching artist, and director Mike Funt is happy to announce open auditions for The Clown School East’s premier production. Shipwrecked! tells the grand tale of a famous adventurer who gets lost on the high seas and ends up seeing fantastic things and meeting exotic people. The audience is whisked away from England to the exotic lands of Aboriginal Australia and back again in a story populated by exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus. He is aided by two highly talented players, who play all of the people (and animals) he meets along the way. However, all might not be as it seems…Shipwrecked! brings the joy of storytelling alive, and questions whether a story being real or fabricated makes the journey any less treasured.
