Q&A with Maggie Meath (Miss Honey)


Q: What's the most fun part of being in "Matilda?"

A: “Matilda” is a blast across the board. I’m fortunate enough to have many scenes with Bill (Miss Trunchbull), who is so fun to play with on stage. The most fun I have, though, is in Mrs. Wormwood and Rudolpho‘s scene and song “Loud.” I can’t tell you much without spoiling some fun, but I’ll admit it is pretty tough to keep a straight face. 

Q: Why do you think people should come to see this show?

A: I love “Matilda” because it’s fun and fulfilling for the entire family. There’s a tremendous amount of action and music/dancing for littles, but tons of humor for the adults. There are also many heartwarming and emotional moments for theatre goers who enjoy a little drama. I can’t imagine anyone having a bad time watching this show!

Q: What has it been like to work with so many young actors in this process?

A: I love working with young actors. The energy, enthusiasm and sincerity they all bring to rehearsals is invigorating and infectious. Being able to play with them on stage is a gift.

Q: If you could play any of the kids' parts, who would you choose, and why?

A: Without a doubt, I’d choose Bruce. His part is packed with comedy, silliness and a crazy character arc! It’s a dream role for any comedian.
