Roald Dahl's much-loved children's story Matilda has been re-worked into a phenomenally successful 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!

Guardian★★★★★ – "An evening of unadulterated bliss" Evening Standard★★★★★ – "The quest for a great new musical is over" Daily Express★★★★★ – "An absolute cracker of a show, bursting with dynamism, fizzing with verve" Sunday Times★★★★★ – "Easily the standout musical of the decade"

 

 Guest – “What time does show finish on TUES night please”

Admin – “It starts at 7 and has a running time of 2 hours and 35 minutes, including the interval”
