Matilda the Musical
DescriptionFollowing an acclaimed season in Stratford, The Royal Shakespeare Company's world premiere production of Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical transfers to London's Cambridge Theatre. Roald Dahl's much-loved story of Matilda bursts into life on stage in this brand new musical version where children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination. 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... Matilda The Musical played to sold-out audiences at the Royal Shakespeare Companies Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon for twelve weeks from November 2010 to January 2011. The Matilda musical, which captured the imagination of young and old alike during its short run, is written by the highly acclaimed playwright Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by the anarchic Australian comedian, musician and composer Tim Minchin, and direction by Matthew Warchus. Many adult cast members from the original production will reprise their roles at the Cambridge Theatre with the Matilda cast includingBertie Carvel (Miss Trunchbull), Paul Kaye (Mr Wormwood) Josie Walker (Mrs Wormwood) and Lauren Ward (Miss Honey). We have some great Matilda tickets so follow the buy tickets links for a magical evening for young and old alike!
