Matilda the Musical has sold more than $61 million in tickets and amassed multiple awards since opening on Broadway in April 2013. The show pivots around its pint-size star, played by a rotating cast of four young actresses. In December and January, after nearly 300 performances, the show’s original stars returned to middle school.

The girls taking their place—Ava, Paige Brady, 10, Ripley Sobo, 10, and Gabriella Pizzolo, 11—are known as the “Newtildas.”
