Babs and Shaw Skillings are not going to be able to attend the last play at the Atlanta Lyric Theater. It’s Sunday, June 19 at 2pm at the Jennie T Anderson Theater on Marietta Parkway. That’s Father’s Day and would be a great present for that special guy. We have 4 tickets with good seats to offer free to a good home. The play is Matilda. It was on Broadway from 2013 to 2017 for 1555 performances. Here’s the Lyric summary of the play:

“Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents and is the bane of headmistress, Miss Trunchbull—Matilda’s courage and cleverness just might save the day. Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an unforgettable gang of “revolting” children, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp.”

We have good seats and the singing and dancing has always been fabulous. We have really enjoyed the Lyric musicals for many years. First to email me at claims them. Enjoy! Shaw

  • Patriotic Celebration Concerts Friday, June 24 , 7:30 p.m., Sunday, June 26 ,3 p.m.
  • CUC Retreat – October 18-20
