The production team behind Matilda the Musical in Australia have just made their major announcement for today. This announcement was regarding the four young girls they have recruited to play the stage musical’s titular character – Matilda.

The four girls who have been chosen (in alphabetical order) are: Molly Barwick, Sasha Rose, Georgia Taplin & Bella Thomas. These four will be performing in the Sydney Lyric Theatre performances of the show from July 28, with others possibly taking over the role once it begins travelling to other states. Brief profiles on all four girls, sourced through the social media announcements, can be found below:

Molly Barwick is nine years old and is a keen tennis player. She also loves to read books and ride horses.

The beach is where eleven-year-old Sasha Rose likes to spend her spare time and is a keen surfer. Sasha loves to write poetry and is a regular viewer of the National Geographic channel, given her love for animals.

Georgia Taplin is passionate about sports including hockey, touch football and the AFL’s Sydney Swans. Georgia is ten-years-old and her passions are not limited to sporting pursuits, as she plays the double bass and is an avid fan of contemporary music.

Bella Thomas, who is also eleven years old, loves cricket and is an enthusiastic mini-chef who loves craft activities.

Announcements relating to the other adult and child characters are set to be made in the coming weeks and months.

Founder of The Otaku's Study. I have been exploring this labyrinth of fandom these last fifteen years, and still nowhere close to the exit yet. Probably searching for a long time to come.
