Extract from script

Narrator: Matilda had always wanted to go to school. She tried to imagine what her new school would be like. 

Narrator: She pictured a lovely building, surrounded by trees and flowers. There was a building. And children! 

Narrator: Regardless of how the school looked, she was happy to be there. After all, any school is better than no school at all.  Isn’t it? (Ring school bell) (All children freeze and march into places in an arch)

Child: (Steps forward, pointing at Matilda) Oh look there’s a new girl!! What’s your name.

Matilda: (Steps forward) Hallo, my name’s Matilda (Points at Miss Trunchbull) Is that my teacher? (Walks into centre stage)

Child: (Steps forward) No, that’s the principal.
