Matilda the Musical is a magical offering from the acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Company, inspired by the beloved book by the incomparable Roald Dahl!

Hailed as a musical triumph and recipient of over 85 international awards, including 16 for Best Musical, this fantastic piece of theatre continues to delight audiences in London, and began its first UK & Ireland Tour in March 2018.

What Is Matilda About? 

Matilda the Musical tells the story of a young girl of incredible intelligence who is determined to change her own story, even if it means being a little bit naughty...
A funny and sharp book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by celebrated Australian comedian Tim Minchin add a new dimension to this children’s favourite.
Rather than being derivative of the original tale, Matilda the Musical adds new depth to the story.
There’s all the nastiness of Dahl’s novel, with a little girl whizzed across stage by her pigtails and a boy made to eat a giant chocolate cake, but this production also revels in the consolation offered by books and the transformative power of the imagination.

Matthew Warchus’ production is witty and intelligent as well as exuberant and big-hearted.
Matilda the Musical is a fantastic depiction of the disorder of childhood and the importance of making one’s own way in the world.
Backed by sensationally creative sets and props and an extraordinary cast of child and adult actors, this musical truly sets Dahl’s story alight.

Gleefully Nasty, an evening of unadulterated bliss!

Matilda is a fabulous family fizzer. It has strong tunes, witty lyrics and enough ‘eew!’ moments to satisfy the most revolting urchin.

Brilliant I saw the show before at a different location but the actual performance at the Cambridge Theatre and the cast was fantastic, as I’ve mentioned it was my second time seeing it with my grandchildren and to be honest I was not really looking forward to it... however the cast were brilliant and I now keep saying to the kids how good it was do well done !!!

The settings were fantastic, the child actor was incredible. We found the story slow, and the actress playing the mother inaudible. She screeched most of the time and it was very difficult to hear her dialogue. In all we found it too long

A birthday treat for my 9 year old granddaughter. She has read the book many times and was thrilled to see it performed on stage.
