NEW YORK, N.Y. - A new batch of Matildas are en route to Broadway.

Producers of the hit British import "Matilda the Musical" have tapped Paige Brady, Gabriella Pizzolo, Ripley Sobo, and Ava Ulloa (YOO'-jo-ah) as the next group who will rotate playing the telekinetic heroine at the Shubert Theatre.

The four will replace Sophia Gennusa, Oona (OO'-na) Laurence, Bailey Ryon and Milly Shapiro, who all received Tony Honors for Excellence in the Theatre, a non-competitive commendation.

Ten-year-old Paige, from the Philadelphia area, is making her Broadway debut, as is 10-year-old Gabriella, from upstate New York, and 9-year-old New York City native Ava. Ten-year-old Ripley, also from upstate New York, made her Broadway debut in "Once."
