About Matilda The Musical
‘The RSC’s new musical version of Roald Dahl’s Matilda is a triumph:
enchanting, bold and ingenious’
‘The show only ended an hour ago, and I’m already longing to see it again’
Following a sensational sell-out season at The Courtyard Theatre, the RSC’s production of MATILDA THE MUSICAL transfers to London’s West End this October.
Roald Dahl’s much-loved story bursts into life on stage in this brand new musical version by Dennis Kelly and award-winning musician and comedian Tim Minchin. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
Her parents think she is a nuisance and she thinks, quite rightly, they are only interested in watching telly. Life is not much better at school, where the monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies both students and teachers ALIKE. Then one day Matilda discovers she has a very special power and decides it's time the grown-ups were taught a lesson. Be warned, the children are revolting…
MATILDA THE MUSICAL previews at the Cambridge Theatre from 18 October.
