Dozens of primary and secondary students in Hanoi danced, sang in English and played roles in the world-acclaimed “Matilda the Musical” on the stage in Hanoi on July 24.


The performance is part of an initiative that aims to create a chance for Hanoi kids to enjoy Broadway-style entertainment.

The project was inspired by “Matilda the Musical” performed by British students, which has won numerous awards since 2010.

The musical is an opportunity for children to learn acting skills and English language. It also serves as a fun break from their busy schedules with traditional and extra classes.

The musical featured sixty children, aged between 8 – 16.

It took place at the Tuoi Tre (Youth) Theatre in Hanoi.-VNA
