Fans of Roald Dahl remember his beloved character Matilda Wormwood’s determined spirit. Perhaps, too, they recall her love of books.
In honor of Matilda's favorite hobby, there are currently some incentives offered to children who read three or more of Dahl’s books by March 17.
To participate in the Matilda Reading Challenge — a collaboration between Broadway in Cincinnati
and the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County
— pick up a reading passport from the Aronoff Center
ticket office or your local library
, and stamp it after each book is completed.
One reader will win a family four-pack of tickets to Matilda the Musical
during its April run, in addition to a copy of the book and gift cards, while 10 readers will receive a copy of the book signed by the musical’s lead actress.
“This musical is a tribute to those who love books,” says Genevieve Holt, general manager of Broadway in Cincinnati. “We are proud to work with the Library to create a fun reading challenge.”
Matilda the Musical
runs April 4-16, and will close out Broadway in Cincinnati’s 2016-17 season.
