Buy Tickets For Matilda The MusicalBuy Tickets

Roald Dahl's charming novel, loved by generations of readers, has been adapted in a hilarious and poingnat stage version by Dennis Kelly with songs by Australian composer and comedian Tim Minchin.

Matilda, the central character, is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence - and not to mention, psychokinetic powers.

She's despised by her own parents but bonds with her schoolteacher Miss Honey, who faces her own demons in the form of the formidable headmistress Miss Trunchbull, played here hilariously by Bertie Cavill.

Over the course of her first term at school, both teacher and pupil have a profound effect on each other's lives, as they both try to foil the dastardly plans of Miss Trunchbull.

Matilda makes a wonderful birthday or holiday treat for fans of Dahl's novel, as well as those familiar with the 1996 film starring Mara Wilson and Pam Ferris.
