Roald Dahl captured the imagination of audiences across the globe when he penned the story of Matilda—a tale of a special young girl trying to overcome her unappreciative and overbearing parents as well as the tyranny of a monstrous headmistress. She soon discovers that she has special powers, powers that can gather fellow students together for a revolt against the grown-ups.


Set against a quaint small town backdrop, Matilda’s powers unfold and usher audiences into a world of adventure. This year, the story takes to the stage in a beautiful, multi-Olivier Award winning musical version created by Dennis Kelly—capturing the rich narrative of its original material but adding depth with spectacular music


Matilda The Musical opens 19 March and will run through 21 December 2014 at the Cambridge Theatre. Show schedule is at 2:30pm, Wednesday and Saturday and Sunday at 3pm; Tuesdays at 7pm and Wednesday to Saturday at 7:30pm.

“Easily the standout musical of the decade”

The Sunday Times


“If anything, it is actually richer than Dahl's novel. It captures all the original's delicious nastiness, particularly in depicting Matilda's school, Crunchem Hall (motto: "children are maggots"), run by the fearsome Miss Trunchbull, but it also celebrates the solace of books and the transforming powers of the imagination.”

The Guardian


“Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre is hilarious, moving and magical“

The Telegraph


“Mr. Minchin’s score, one of the most original in years, balances melody on the edge of dissonance, so that even can-do anthems have an undertow of apprehension.”

The New York Times


“Gloriously over the top it’s an irresistible and ingenious mix of fun, fizz, cruelty, incredible choreography and above all warmth which means we root for the kids from the start. Fantastic.”

Daily Express


“Matilda is a gem. On its debut at the Royal Shakespeare Company's Stratford-upon-Avon home last winter, it looked a show of rare inventiveness and charm. Now, as it bursts onto the London stage, it seems every bit as enchanting - a winter warmer but with a nice side-order of surrealism. At the heart of this satisfyingly fresh adaptation of a cherished Roald Dahl story are Australian comedian Tim Minchin's music and lyrics, which ooze humour without veering towards smugness.”
