Armed with wit, intelligence, and telekinetic powers, she realises it's time to revolt against the headmistress, Miss Trunchbull.

This hugely successful musical is in its 12th year of performances and has won 101 international awards, including Olivier and Tony Awards. Since the show transferred to the West End in October 2011, Matilda has attracted more than 11 million people across 90 cities worldwide.
