Matilda story time
The Barrow-Civic Theatre and the Franklin Civic Operetta Association are partnering with two Venango County libraries to offer a special sneak peek at “Matilda The Musical.” Several of the show’s lead characters will hold free Matilda and Friends story times on Saturday, September 17. They will appear in full costume at 10 a.m. at the Oil City Library and 1 p.m. at the Franklin Public Library. Interested attendees should call the libraries to register at 814-678-3072 for Oil City and 814-432-5062 for Franklin. Along with sharing excerpts from the book “Matilda,” which inspired the musical, the cast members will also answer questions, pose for pictures, and have some giveaways. Members of “Matilda” will be at each stop for approximately one hour and the event is open to all ages, according to Kristy Moore, one of the show’s producers. This will be the community’s only chance to see the characters in person before curtains open on the show, she said. After that, they will have to buy tickets to the show, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. on September 30, and October 1, 6, 7 and 8; and 2 p.m. October 2.
