Matilda The Musical, a captivating tale of empowerment

Adapted from the incomparable children's novel by Roald Dahl, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Matilda the Musical proves that it pays to stand up for what you believe in. With ingenious staging, quirky choreography, exceptional scenic design, and an incredible cast of young performers, you will be awed from start to finish.

After opening at the RSC's home in Stratford-upon-Avon, the musical transferred to the West End's Cambridge Theatre.Matilda won seven Olivier Awards in 2012 — alongside Hamilton and Cabaret, it’s the biggest overall win of any London musical. Even though you can now catch Matilda on the big screen, there’s nothing like seeing the musical in London live.

What is Matilda The Musical about?

Meet Matilda Wormwood. She’s an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a vivid imagination, a sharp mind, and telekinetic powers, dares to take a stand and change her destiny. When she faces Crunchem Hall headmistress Miss Trunchbull, she must challenge those above her for the greater good. Can Matilda, Miss Honey, and her classmates do the unthinkable and defeat Trunchbull? Watch them swing through the auditorium and revolt their way to a resolution.

What makes Matilda The Musical such an outstanding family-friendly show?

Matilda the Musical stands out above the rest due to its small but mighty lead character. Wise beyond her years, Matilda imparts valuable lessons on the power of education and the importance of standing up for what’s right. Matilda is brought to life on stage with fun choreography, incredible scenic designs, and witty music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.

The show will inspire audiences of all ages, as cast member Elliot Harper attested: “It’s very sophisticated and adult audiences get a kick out of following the story because it's pretty nuanced. There's also a lot for children and younger people to enjoy. It's very vivid and comic book in its storytelling.”

Who wrote Matilda The Musical?

Roald Dahl's 1988 children's story of the same name informs the Matilda show. British screenwriter Dennis Kelly adapted Matilda for the stage alongside Tim Minchin who provides a catchy original score, with songs including "Revolting Children," "When I Grow Up," and "Naughty."
