Kudzu’s journey with Matilda the Musical began in January 2020. We were so excited to bring this magical story to life later that summer, but when COVID-19 hit, we were forced to postpone the show. We had hoped to stage it in summer 2021 until our beloved director, Wesley Williamson, passed away unexpectedly in January 2021.
To enable the cast that Wesley hand-picked to perform this year, we have made the heartfelt decision to present this show as a benefit concert on behalf of the new Wesley W. Williamson Memorial College Scholarship at Kudzu Playhouse. We hope you will join us and donate in memory of Wesley to honor the profound impact he left on our local theatre community.
We hope you will join us on August 14 at either 2 PM or 7 PM as we bring the incredible music of Matilda to life, and celebrate our dear friend. This event is Pay What You Can – General Admission, but we hope you will consider making at least a $20 donation.
