Adapted from the incomparable children’s novel by Roald Dahl, Matilda the Musical tells 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.
Since its 2010 premiere, the show has gone on to win more than 90 international awards, including 23 for Best Musical. On top of that, the UK’s Sunday Times newspaper described it as ‘easily the standout musical of the decade’.
With a book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda the Musical has captured the hearts and minds of children and adults alike, while effectively tickling their funny bones.
This is a fabulous family musical, but certainly isn’t just for kids. Kelly and Minchin’s work has been praised for developing the scope of Dahl’s original story, while creating lovable and hateable characters, funny and witty dialogue, and a plethora of memorable, hummable, and toe-tapping songs.
Matilda the Musical is a show that will highly entertain the children in the audience and offer plenty for the adults to enjoy too.
