Zoe Manarel (A Little Princess) announced that she will take her final bow as Lavender in Matilda on September 4th! Go see her while you can!


After almost 14 months with Matilda I will be taking my final bow on Sunday September 4th- The past year will be one I will never forget, it has been an amazing learning and growing experience that a kid my age usually doesn't get. I will always be grateful for the opportunity and all It has taught me. I am so lucky to have worked with such talented people and have made so many life long friends and was lucky enough to gain some amazing Matilda / Lavender fans along the way too !!!! Best of all , I have the most amazing memories that I will cherish forever and they are all stored in a special place in my heart… right next to my Matilda Family – xoxo "life is a performance, earn an ovation" photo creds: @johnmarajr #onceamaggotalwaysamaggot #mightymaggots #lavenderpower #matildathemusical #iwillmissyou #onwardandupward
