    I am directing Matilda in November.  We are in need of the chalkboard and cake tricks.  I called one company and it was already rented out.  Any suggestions?

    Hello Carolyn,

    Our sister school did the show and used a simple projection for the chalkboard. For the cake, they had one for each night. There was a hole in the desk that the cake sat and the actor , while eating some of the cake, pushed the rest down the hole into a bag. Essentially a cake trapdoor. Very effective. ​
