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.

My son (aged 7) was a little tired through the first half but he was on the edge of his seat for the whole of the second half - the “Revolting Children” number was particularly brilliant and Matilda herself was absolutely amazing!

entertainment for my family

Good show for all of my family. My teenage daughters knew the story and appreciated the difference to the film. My 12 year old boy couldn’t take his eyes off it, otherwise I don’t know what was in his head. My wife who’s English isn’t so good enjoyed the spectacle but couldn’t follow the story. I enjoyed a show that I wouldn’t have chosen thinking of myself alone.

The kids were fantastic. I expected a little bit more of magic from Matilda. She was a fantastic actress, singer and performed very well but sometimes I wished she could smile a little more during the story telling so that the publikum could feel the enthusiasm. She was sometimes too serious for me. The show was really amazing. Congratulations again for the children. I also missed the red ribbon on matildas hair. I would definetly recomend it!

Great show

Having read the books as a child and seen the film version, I was familiar with the storyline. However, whilst some aspects of the story ate omitted, this is a fun and vibrant interpretation with good music and excellent acting talent, especially from the young actors. The staging was very well done, utilising various technical and creative methods. However there were times where there seemed to be an imbalance with the sound.

A show that really exceeded my expectations. The set, the music, the acting, the costumes and the lighting was just perfect. I am a 28 year old male and my wife loves Matilda (to the point she can recite it wors for word) but even I enjoyed it. A lot of adult relative banter which kept me interested. I cant emphasise how good this would be for parents let alone kids.

Great show for all the family. Cast excellent, smaller theatre means everyone feels close to the action. We got our seats upgraded for free from upper to dress circle (midweek performance so seats available). This was automatic and a really nice surprise as it was a birthday treat so suddenly to have front row seats in dress circle was brilliant.

Appalling waste of time and money

A very poor interpretation of the story, missing many opportunities for magical and creative theatre. Matilda is a girl with magic powers, but nothing magic was done except a cup fell over and writing on the backboard once. Talk of suicide is hardly an appropriate children's theatre topic. And appearance of clunky Russians was an unnecessary interpretation of the story. Singing was mostly of a loud shrieking style, and the words were not intelligible. The theatre was horribly overcrowded with inadequate facilities for being checked to enter the theatre and bathrooms. I deeply regret wasting my money on this show.

Avoid if you have epilepsy, this show came with no warnings about flashing lights!! Not a great show.

The show was okay, not brilliant, Ms Trenchbull was good the rest of the acting was passable. The music was too loud to hear the singing for group numbers, therefore a complete waste of money as we could not hear the singing, except for the individual numbers. The language was inappropriate for young kids and therefore, a third of the audience. The seating was not great either tbh, I paid full price for an unrestricted view, however the view was actually restricted, the layout of the seating meant that everyone was sat forward in their seats, so the show was a really uncomfortable experience. Also the theatre was far too cold with many of us shivering throughout the show. There were flashing lights at the audience, of you have epilepsy avoid the show at all costs.

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.

The books of Roald Dahl are enjoying a whole new lease of theatrical life thanks to the efforts of agent Mel Kenyon who looks after the deceased writers legacy.
