Matilda the Musical Information

Adapted from the incomparable children's novel by Roald Dahl, Matilda The Musical is the multi-award winning musical from the Royal Shakespeare Company that continues to delight audiences in the West End. *Matilda the Musical* tickets are available on London Theatre.

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. After opening at the RSC's home in Stratford upon Avon, the musical transferred to the West End where it was greeted with a set of excellent reviews, with critics praising not only the charm of the score and book, but also the ingenious staging by director Matthew Warchus and choreographer Peter Darling.

Since opening at the Cambridge Theatre in November 2011, the hit show has gone on to win over 50 major international awards, including 12 for Best Musical. Featuring a smart and witty original score by Tim Minchin, alongside an exciting book by Dennis Kelly, the *Matilda *musical adaptation is one of the most successful British musicals of modern times, and entertains audiences both old and young.  

The show went on to win seven Olivier Awards in 2012, marking the biggest overall win of any London musical. As well as winning the award for Best New Musical, the four young actresses who originated and shared the title role took home the collective award for Best Actress in a Musical. The show later transferred to Broadway, where it won five Tony Awards, and has since entertained audiences in Australia and across the United States.

Featuring exceptional scenic design, fantastic choreography and staging and an incredible cast of young performers, *Matilda the Musical* will inspire audiences of all ages. The timeless story of a small girl's determination to challenge those above her for the greater good, combined with Roald Dahl's signature wit and naughtiness, makes this an unforgettable West End musical.

The musical follows Matilda, a precocious 5-year-old girl who loves reading and learning, but is suppressed by her TV obsessed parents who pay her little attention. As she grows up she begins to resist the challenges and obstacles presented to her, learning that sometimes you have to be a "little bit naughty" in order to get through life. As she begins to master living with her family, her world is thrown into disarray as she starts a new school under the tyrannous grip of Headteacher Miss Trunchbull. Seeking solace in the library in a world of her imagination and creation, Matilda forms strong bonds with adults such as Librarian Mrs Phelps and her class teacher Miss Honey. Together they give her the confidence to embrace her special gift and individuality which is needed to reclaim her life.
