Event Description

POPs is The first theater company to perform Matilda, The Musical in the South Bay at the

Centinela Valley Cultural Arts Center, August 2nd-4th

Leading performing arts company Puttin’ on Productions (POPs) produces musical theater experiences featuring top young actors in professional level productions for all ages. This August, POPs proudly presents the musical theater blockbuster, Matilda, The Musical.  Based on the 1988 children’s novel of the same name by Roald Dahl, Matilda is one of the most sought after shows in the West End in London and on Broadway.  Matilda also holds the record for the most Olivier Awards won by a musical (tied with Hamilton) and five Tony Awards including Best Musical. The show is about a precocious girl’s journey who loves to read, overcomes obstacles caused by her family and school, and helps her teacher to reclaim her life.  Four performances only for the general public, starting August 2nd at the Centinela Valley Cultural Arts Center in Lawndale.

Matilda features a first-rate creative team with co-direction by Luke Yankee and POP’s Founder Julia Mirkovich.   Yankee has directed on and off-Broadway and currently serves as Producing Artistic Director of the Long Beach Civic Opera, one of the largest musical theatres in America. He has worked with incredible talent including:  Morgan Fairchild, Cynthia Nixon, Ben Vareen, Sir Rex Harrison, Edward Asner, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Christopher Reeve to name a few. “POPs and the South Bay Community are so fortunate to have Yankee’s theatrical genius!” says Mirkovich.  “We’re thrilled to be the first theater company to bring Matilda to the South Bay under the direction and guidance of a very powerful creative team, including Luke Yankee. Matilda’s magic shines through and appeals to children and adults alike with its quick-witted tales, gymnastic like choreography, and memorable characters,” says Julia Hayes Mirkovich, Co-Founder of POPs.

Matilda will run for 4 performances, August 2nd – 4th for the general public, plus the August 2nd matinee show for underserved youth, and features a large cast in the state of the art, 1200-seat theater at the Centinela Valley Cultural Arts Center.
