Matilda The Musical


Following a hugely successful run in Stratford upon Avon Matilda - A Musical is heading for London's Cambridge Theatre. Roald Dahls much loved story has been brought to life by Dennis Kelly and award-winning comedian and musician Tim Minchin. Many of the original cast will reprise their roles for the Cambridge Theatre.

Matilda follows the story of an ordinary girl with extraordinary powers. Matilda Wormwood's parents think she is nothing but a nuisance where as she thinks they care more about the TV than her. When they are not slouched in front of the telly, she is ignored by her mother in favour of ballroom dancing and by her father for dodgy business deals. At school Matilda life isn't much better with the monstrous Miss Trunchbull terrifying the students and teachers, that is until one day Matilda discovers her powers and decides the grown up's need to be taught a lesson.

In 1996 the fantastic story of Matilda was adapted into a film and now the stage adaptation is taking the theatre world by storm. The Musical was awarded the Peter Heppie Award for Best Musical at The Critics Circle Award.
