Matilda

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 to Saturday, June 2, 2018

Matilda The Musical is the multi-award winning musical from the Royal Shakespeare Company, inspired by the beloved book by the incomparable Roald Dahl.

'Believe the hype' New York Post

'Easily the standout musical of the decade' Sunday Times

With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

Winner of over 85 international awards, including 16 for Best Musical, Matilda continues to delight audiences in London, Australia and on tour around the USA.

‘Writer Dennis Kelly and composer and lyricist Tim Minchin go to the top of the class with this anarchically joyous, gleefully nasty and ingenious musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s story’ Guardian

Please note, children under the age of five will not be admitted.
