About Matilda The Musical Tickets

Matilda The Musical description

Enjoy fabulous on-stage fun and games with Matilda The Musical

Roald Dahl stories have been delighting children for decades with their irreverent tone, taking the side of youngsters as they battle against unreasonable, wicked and thoroughly nasty grown ups. Matilda the Musical is based on one of Dahl’s best loved books. Presented by the world renowned Royal Shakespeare Company, this show is a huge hit with kids everywhere.

Matilda The Musical – The story

In this enduringly popular and wonderfully dark 1988 children’s story, Roald Dahl unfurls the classic tale of Matilda, a gifted child with terrible parents. Matilda’s mother is fascinated by ballroom dancing and ignores her daughter in the pursuit of her obsession. Her father is convinced that the books Matilda loves so much will cause Verrucas to grow on her soul. And the headmistress of Matilda’s horrid school is determined imprison as many children as she can. When Matilda finds she is the lucky owner of a very special ability, will there be a happy ending?

Matilda the Musical – Fantastic entertainment from the Royal Shakespeare Company

The combination of Dahl’s brave little heroine, a script by the Bafta nominated writer Dennis Kelly and hilarious words and music by off-the-wall Australian comedian Tim Minchin make this a treat your children will remember forever. The set is absolutely stunning and the show’s director Matthew Warchus, who also directed Ghost and The Lord of the Rings, has created a musical rich in stage magic with an appeal that touches every age. In fact adults enjoy the show’s clever humour and word play just as much as the kids they accompany.

The production is designed by Rob Howell and choreographed by Peter Darling. Hugh Vanstone created the show’s extraordinarily atmospheric lighting. Christopher Nightingale supervised and orchestrated the music and Simon Bake the sound. Best of all, the stage magic has been created by the same consultant illusionist who put together the effects for Ghost the Musical, Paul Kieve, delivering a truly magical experience to delighted audiences.

Matilda the Musical song list

Tim Minchin’s quirky tunes and marvellously silly lyrics will have you singing in your seats, kicking off with Miracle, Naughty, School Song and Pathetic and moving the story forward with cracking tunes The Hammer, The Chokey Chant, Loud, This Little Girl and Bruce. Act Two features hit singalong songs When I Grow Up, I'm Here, The Smell of Rebellion, Quiet, My House and the rousing Revolting Children.

Fantastic production. Well directed and produced. Acting was brilliant and the lighting and sound effects were amazing. Our seats on the upper circle were spot on. Brilliant view. Cant recommend this show enough. Myself and my daughter have watched Matilda several times on TV (were both adults!) and the show and performance didnt disappoint. Well done to everyone involved.

Great story and excellent cast

Loved the show overall - it’s a heartwarming story. A few jokes aimed at the kids in the audience and a few more adult themes hinted at. The volume of the speakers was just a bit too high and actually we struggled to make out the words in places as result of it all just being too loud. Could benefit from paring back rather than adding to it, in terms of the lighting flashes and stuff. The moving chalk etc was subtler and consequently actually much more enjoyable. Loved the comic Mrs Trunchbull and the very well acted Miss Honey had an angelic voice. Matilda herself was great, a very impressive young actress. Overall a great experience, much recommended !

Review: A new MATILDA takes the stage at the Cambridge Theatre

Matilda The Musical - London When a little girl you have known since she was five is cast as Matilda you go along to one of her first performances with an open mind and ready to be entertained. I was not disappointed!

The new cast of children (one of four teams alternating performances) are superb and deserve the standing ovation they received. Emma Moore is one of four children cast as Matilda and her confidence and stage presence is extraordinary from one so young. Emma captivates the audience, just as Matilda enthrals the character of Mrs Phelps, the librarian, who she entertains with stories.

Fall in Love with Matilda

Matilda The Musical - London Everybody loves the musical Matilda. When it opened at the Royal Shakespeare's home theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon even the most pompous critics were besotted calling it the greatest new musical of recent years. Actually it isn't, the musical numbers are fun but beyond the infectious kids song - When I Grow Up - there's nothing anyone will still be singing in ten years time but watching the show is a glorious experience and if you haven't seen it before you'll fall in love with it too. I paid a second visit the other night and fell for its charms all over again.
