Matilda The Musical enjoyed a sellout season at the Courtyard Theatre and has now transferred the magic to the West End. Roald Dahl’s much loved story has been brought to life by Dennis Kelly and the hilarious comedian Tim Minchin and has delighted audiences who have been lucky enough to catch a preview performance of the show.
Matilda follows the story of an ordinary girl with extraordinary powers. Matilda’s family think of her as nothing but a nuisance and care more about the TV, ballroom dancing and dodgy business deals than her. Life at school isn’t much better with the monstrous Miss Trunchbull terrifying the students and teachers, that is until one day Matilda discovers her powers and decides the grownups need to be taught a lesson.
Anyone thinking of heading on a London theatre break need to make sure this show is top of their list as Matilda The Musical is on a limited run at the Cambridge Theatre.
Did you see Matilda at the Courtyard Theatre or will you be seeing it in the West End?
