RSC's Matilda The Musical – 2021 West End Dates

Matilda The Musical This is such exciting news. The Royal Shakespeare Company’s hugely popular West End production of Matilda The Musical is returning to the Cambridge Theatre from  16 September 2021, ten years after it first opened. So far it has been seen and loved by over 10 million people in more than 90 cities around the globe, and it's a well-deserved multi-award winner of a show. Funny, touching and wonderfully naughty, this is an absolute classic.

Who’s involved in RSC's Matilda The Musical?

Adapted from Roald Dahl’s fabulous 1988 book, this highly unusual musical premiered at Stratford-upon-Avon in 2010. It quickly transferred to the West End and received rave reviews, billed as a tonic for audiences of every age. These days it's one of the most iconic British musicals of the past decade, starring a powerful, determined young heroine with a remarkable imagination. No wonder it's the proud winner of 99 international awards including 24 for Best Musical. And no wonder Matilda The Musical is the 6th longest-running show in the West End... ever!
