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
