This show is orchestrated to be player-conducted from the Keyboard 2 book. There are 2 keyboards both of which have lots of programming.
Keyboard 1 is the primary piano book and is challenging to play. There are approximately 30 different patches and instruments with nearly 125 different patch changes in the show. These sounds include strings, organ, celeste, orchestral brass, accordion, harp, dulcimer, and even a bandoneon.
Keyboard 2 has lots of open moments in the score allowing this chair to conduct the band. There are approximately 35 unique patches and sounds with 150 patch changes. This book has a lot of the same instruments as Keyboard 1 including the orchestral sounds that layer in nicely with the band as well as piano, music box, dulcimer, and the best patch of all, the hospital beep!

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.
Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!
