Matilda the Musical follows Matilda Wormwood, a gifted child who dares to take a stand and show the world what she is capable of. Matilda premiered at the Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2010, and later transferred to the West End's Cambridge Theatre, where it's played ever since.

Over the years, hundreds of children have worn the Crunchem Hall uniform and starred in Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre. The original Matilda quartet — Cleo Demetriou, Eleanor Worthington Cox, Kerry Ingram, and Sophia Kiely — won the Olivier for Best Actress in a Musical. Matilda is definitely the place to spot the stars of the future, today!
