About Matilda The Musical

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, with original songs from comedian Tim Minchin and book by Dennis Kelly, Matilda the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre is the captivating new musical masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dares to change her destiny.

Matilda’s 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!

Winner of a record-breaking seven Olivier Awards in 2012, Matilda the Musical has also won five Best Musical awards since its opening when it received 5-star reviews across the board.

The current Matilda the Musical London cast includes Craige Els (Miss Trunchbull), Lucy-Mae Beacock, Hayley Canham, Chloe Hawthorn and Lara Wollington sharing the title role with Annette McLaughlin (Mrs Wormwood), Haley Flaherty (Miss Honey) and Steve Furst (Mr Wormwood).

From 3 September Alex Gaumond and Kay Murphy will join the cast taking over the roles of Miss Trunchbull and Mrs Wormwood respectively.
