The Show
Delighting children and adults alike, Roald Dahl's much-loved story of Matilda has become one of the West End's most popular musicals, gaining numerous awards in just a few short years. The story follows a special little girl with an extraordinary imagination. Ignored by her dim-witted parents, Matilda spends most of her time reading books at an astonishing speed. Life isn't much better at school having to contend with the terrifying headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, but one day Matilda discovers she has a very special power, and decides it's time the grownups were taught a lesson. Colourful costumes, onstage magic, clever and witty music and lyrics, Matilda is a firm family favourite that's not to be missed.

Theatre advisory: the show is suitable for ages 6 and up. All persons entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket and be old enough to occupy their own seats. Babies-in-arms are not admitted to the auditorium.

History of Matilda
Bursting to life on stage, the musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's Matilda has been playing to sold out audiences since November 2010. "Matilda the Musical," is a collaboration between seasoned playwright Dennis Kelly, Australian musical Tim Minchin, and director Matthew Warchus, which originally premiered at the RSC's Courtyard Theatre in Stratford -upon-Avon before moving to London's West End in October 2011. The production has gone on to smash Theatreland records even securing a place in the Book of Guinness World Records for Most Laurence Olivier Award wins. The show successfully transferred to Broadway in early 2013, and bookings are currently being taken up to May 2015 for the West End production.

Awards and what the critics have to say
The show has been so well received that numerous awards have been won since 2011 including 4 WhatsOnStage awards and a further 7 Laurence Olivier Awards in 2012. In the process Matilda the Musical stole the title from a 1980 production of Nicholas Nickleby that held the world record for number of Olivier awards for more than 20 years. Matilda the Musical has recently been shortlisted for Best West End Show for the 2015 WhatsOnStage Awards.

'UTTERLY EXHILARATING' Matthew Warchus's colourful riot of a production achieves an even dizzier balance between†gleeful, grotesque, fun†and heart-tugging†poignancy, brilliantly drilled†dynamism†and†warm, unforced charm.' The Guardian

'THE QUEST FOR A GREAT NEW MUSICAL IS OVER' The Evening Standard

'EASILY THE STANDOUT MUSICAL OF THE DECADE. The Sunday Times
