     We need to purchase a complete animation package for the MATILDA animations.  Saw a company on line called DRAKKADON Theatrical Design. Has anyone used their products?  
    Or, do you have a suggestion for other animation packages to purchase?
    We can probably make the stop-motion escapologist scene, but need to find the others ASAP.

    Thanks for your suggestions!!!

    We have used Theatre Ave ( and Rick Frendt ( for projections before and have been very happy.  Of course, MTI promote the BMD projection set (

    I've never heard of DRAKKADON nor can I find them on line ???

    Instead of the stop-motion animated scene, we had the actors perform a dance routine that told the story.

    I am sorry that I am just seeing this message now, and it's probably of no help for your show at this point, But I am the owner and designer of, which I think is the website you were referring to. I have made animations for both Matilda and Matilda JR, and expanded on scenic projections available as well. I recently worked with a few schools on customizing the artwork to fit their specific needs, and I am happy to answer any questions or requests! Email me anytime at

    I hope your show went great!!
