Roswell Youth Theatre Presents Matilda Jr. The Musical

The children are rising up. Join the revolt in this Broadway Junior adaptation of the Tony Award-winning hit! Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence…and special powers! She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. 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! Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR. is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Roswell In Print – We Are Forward Thinking outdoor photo exhibition

Exploration Two: “We Are Forward Thinking”

Dates: March 5, 2021 – May 31, 2021

Where: The installation will be on display along the path outside City Hall and inside MARTA bus shelters along the two main MARTA routes in Roswell

The second characteristic photographers were invited to explore was “We Are Forward Thinking”.

“Intentional , inclusive, blended, charming, verdant, illustrious. Telling our story through artwork paints a picture that is lively, vivacious, leafy, and lush. If our city is a canvas for art, our history, physical surroundings, and the spirit of our people are the palette.“ – Public Art Master Plan, Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell, 2017.

The current pandemic has momentarily closed the doors for many traditional spaces dedicated to art but the desire for connection and creative experiences is thriving. Roswell has a wealth of nontraditional outdoor spaces to explore and there is an opportunity to curate unique and unexpected experiences for neighborhoods throughout the city.

Roswell Arts Fund, in partnership with the Hagan Family Foundation, Getty Images and the City of the Roswell saw an opportunity to curate unique and unexpected experiences for neighborhoods throughout the city. Additionally, to support our artists all images shown in the exhibit are available to purchase and 70% of every sale will go directly to the artist!

Roswell in Print will have three distinct installations in different outdoor locations that allow for safe and socially distanced experiences. Each exploration will take inspiration from the characteristics that define the community of Roswell, GA: Modern Spirit, Southern Soul. Through an extensive public engagement process, we have come to understand that spirit by asking the people of Roswell who they are and what is important to their community. The unique elements that emerged from those conversations became the themes at the core of this photography exhibition.

In each exhibit, the visual storytellers featured will span countries and generations. We hope that these photographs, inspired by Roswell’s essence, will convey a universal message of belonging, a welcoming sense of community that travels beyond our city limits and resonates with viewers near and far.
