With the holidays just around the corner, I have the perfect holiday gift idea or fun family day outing in the city! I don’t know about you, but our house does not need any additional toys or gadgets.  Over the past few years, I have switched out some of the kids holiday gifts for some cool family outings and fun experiences.  I love the memories we make together and the kids absolutely love our special day together.  What is especially great about this particular outing is that it is at the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia, which is the perfect vicinity to enjoy all of the magic of the holidays if you want to make a full day of it!

Walnut Street Theatre continues its landmark 210th season with Roald Dahl’s MATILDA THE MUSICAL. Directed by Linda Goodrich, with choreography by Michelle Gaudette. MATILDA THE MUSICAL begins  previews on November 6th and opens on November 14th through January 6th on the Walnut’s Mainstage.

Based on the beloved Roald Dahl novel, MATILDA THE MUSICAL is the story of the courageous
little girl with an unbounded imagination who proves that despite the odds, you can do anything you
put your mind to—and change your destiny. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by
this Broadway hit and winner of 16 Best Musical awards!

My family and I will be seeing a preview of the show this Friday and we absolutely cannot wait! My kids have been huge fans of Roald Dahl and his amazing stories since they were very young.  We absolutely cannot wait to see Matilda brought to life onstage!
