For the first time ever TKTC & THE TEEN ANNEX brings you the stage adaptation of one of the most character-rich, murder mysteries in recent history with, “KNIVES OUT!” 

 

Nothing could blemish the otherwise lavish birthday party at the palatial estate of the acclaimed crime/mystery novelist, Harlan Thrombey, except for his strange and unaccountable death. Now, the sharp knife in the silver-haired deceased's hand is a dead giveaway that something, or someone, had been bothering Harlan; nevertheless, the cryptic detective, Benoit Blanc, is not entirely sure. Indeed, there is more than one member of the successful author's clingy family who has been economical with the truth so far--and as Blanc struggles to shed light on a tangled mess of half-baked leads and little white lies--all eyes are on the grand prize: Harlan's magnificent legacy. Can Benoit get to the bottom of this perplexing case before someone else dies, too? This show is literally going to be the greatest murder-mystery and most incredible character piece of all time! With amazing roles to portray from: Ransom Drysdale, Detective Benoit Blanc, Marte Cabrera, Joni Thrombey, Linda Drysdale, Walt Thrombey & of course Harlan Thrombey to name a few!! 

 

No TEEN ANNEX show before has ever had this many in-depth, rich and emotionally complex characters! All TEEN performers, artists and creative people are welcome to be  a part of this amazing performance experience & our FIRST TIME EVER bringing this masterpiece to the TKTC STAGE!

TKTC is SOOOO EXCITED to finally bring you this acclaimed & hysterical and magical broadway musical adaptation, “Matilda! “ We have wanted to do this show for years and now is finally the time! 

 

“Matilda! “ is the story of an extraordinary little girl with extraordinary powers. The daughter of abusive parents, Matilda finds refuge in library books, which she reads quickly and in creating her own stories. Things are no better at school, where Matilda also must face a tyrannical and cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, who believes in Crunchem Hall’s motto: “Bambinatum est Magitum,” or “Children are Maggots.” She finds companionship in her teacher, Miss Honey, though well-intentioned, is shy and fragile. Brave little Matilda knows she has to stand up against the adults in her world, and in doing so, discovers her own remarkable powers. Matilda’s bravery teaches Miss Honey and her classmates an important lesson -- that even though life can be hard, “nobody but me is gonna change my story” so “sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.” 

 

For the FIRST TIME EVER, The team of  THE KIDS THEATRE COMPANY brings this powerful, important and incredibly fun musical to life. It’s going to be  HUGE Main-Stage musical extravaganza perfect for kids of all ages and levels of experience looking to challenge themselves and be a part of an amazing team & performance experience!!
