Aspire Performing Arts Company is “revolting!” Tickets are available now for Aspire PAC’s upcoming pilot production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical JR., running Friday, November 9 through Sunday, November 11 at Hackensack Performing Art Center in Hackensack, NJ. 

Adapted from the Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical - Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical JR. is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.
