Matilda arrived at The Cambridge Theatre with a dream selection of talent assembling under the banner of a Royal Shakespeare Company production.
Stadium-selling comedian Tim Minchin provides original songs, prolific Matthew Warchus directs, and the acclaimed writer Dennis Kelly delivers the book. Together they create a stunning new musical, based on the original story by the inimitable Roald Dahl.
Matilda is a captivating musical that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination, and the inspiring story of a girl who dared to change her destiny. This magical show is pure escapism for all ages and the lead performance of the young Matilda has to be seen with your own eyes to believe. Never before has such a young talent filled a West End stage so magnificently.
The Royal Shakespeare Company's world premiere production has mesmerised young and old alike and continues to play to packed houses at London's Cambridge Theatre.
"It's hard to imagine a show capturing the spirit of Roald Dahl s literary world more perfectly than this one." - The Observer
