Matilda The Musical is an uplifting tale about a gifted and brave girl who loves books but is born to parents who don’t understand her and who send her away to a school run by the terrifying Miss Trunchbull. But she is befriended by caring teacher Miss Honey and her fightback begins.

Commissioned in 2010 by the RSC, it was written by renowned playwright Denis Kelly, with lyrics and music by comedian and musician Tim Minchin. The show’s memorable tunes include Revolting Children and When I Grow Up.

The show has won over 85 international awards, including 16 for Best Musical, and swept the board at the 2012 Olivier Awards with a record-breaking seven awards.
