Itinerary

Description

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s novel, Matilda the Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company. With sparkling writing by Dennis Kelly and outstanding songs by the celebrated composer and lyricist Tim Minchin, the musical adds a new dimension to this family favourite. Original songs, creative sets, an extraordinary cast and phenomenal choreography combine to create a musical triumph which revels in the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination.

Recipient of over 85 international awards, Matilda tells the story of an incredibly intelligent young girl who dares to change her destiny, even if it means being a little bit naughty! All of the recognisable scenes from Dahl’s brilliant novel remain, from Amanda being whizzed across the stage by her pigtails to Bruce being made to eat a giant chocolate cake. Witty and exuberant, this musical truly sets Dahl’s tale alight to produce what The Sunday Times calls “the stand-out musical of the decade”!
