(AP) Watch out, Broadway: The four little girls picked to play the telekinetic heroine Matilda in New York have been revealed and they're already pretty magical.

Meet 9-year-old Sophia Gennusa, and 10-year-olds Oona Laurence, Bailey Ryon and Milly Shapiro, who will rotate playing the precocious lead when Matilda the Musical comes to New York next year.

The four one from New York City, two from the surrounding area and one from Pennsylvania will be making their Broadway debuts but don't lack confidence.

Says Milly: I never thought this would happen when I was this age. I thought I'd be 16 before I did something like this.

The musical, now in London, is based on Roald Dahl's 1988 book about a girl who unleashes her magical powers.
