Matilda The Musical (London)

Matilda arrived at The Cambridge Theatre with a dream selection of talent assembling under the banner of a Royal Shakespeare Company production.

Stadium-selling comedian Tim Minchin provides original songs, prolific Matthew Warchus directs, and the acclaimed writer Dennis Kelly delivers the book. Together they create a stunning new musical, based on the original story by the inimitable Roald Dahl.

Matilda is a captivating musical that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination, and the inspiring story of a girl who dared to change her destiny. This magical show is pure escapism for all ages and the lead performance of the young Matilda has to be seen with your own eyes to believe. Never before has such a young talent filled a West End stage so magnificently.

The Royal Shakespeare Company's world première production has mesmerised young and old alike and continues to play to packed houses at London's Cambridge Theatre.

‘It’s hard to imagine a show capturing the spirit of Roald Dahl’s literary world more perfectly than this one’

  • Fantastic night out

    28 August 2016

    Not being the biggest fan of musicals, the many shows I have seen previously have been somewhat under duress. Matilda appealed a little more knowing the music was by Tim Minchin but I wasn't expecting such a spectacular evening. The music complimented the story perfectly. The stage show was wonderful. And the whole Performance was executed to perfection by the cast with the ideal mix of humour and darkness required of a Roald Dahl tale. I find most musicals fudge tacky songs and contrived stage shows to cover a second rate story. Not so in Matilda. This was a night out to remember. I cannot rate it highly enough.

  • Brilliant Musical

    8 August 2016

    My wife & me were debating whether to go for Lion King or Matilda & are glad we chose the latter. What a brilliant performance it was from the whole cast. Absolutely breathtaking & worth every pound.

  • Easily the stand-out musical of the decade!

    The Sunday Times

  • Gleefully Nasty, an evening of unadulterated bliss!

    The Guardian

  • Matilda is a fabulous family fizzer. It has strong tunes, witty lyrics and enough ‘eew!’ moments to satisfy the most revolting urchin.
