Roald Dahl's much-loved children's story "Matilda" has been re-worked into a phenomenally successful West End musical, which has picked up over fifty major international awards since its opening, including twelve for 'Best Musical'.
If you can still remember what it was like to be told off by grown-ups when you were a little kid, then this is the show for you, because Matilda is going through exactly the same thing.
She's blessed with an amazing imagination, but her mum and dad just think she's a nuisance -- they are more interested in watching the TV and dancing. And her terrifying headmistress is no help either -- all she does is go around scaring the pupils.
But then Matilda discovers that she has a very special power, and decides to teach the grown-ups a lesson... Uh-oh!
