Age Suitability


Matilda features the spectacular combination of Dahl’s plucky heroine, a moving script by the Bafta-nominated writer Dennis Kelly and hilarious words and music by Australian comedian Tim Minchin. He makes this a treat your children will remember forever. The beautiful set is wonderfully utilized by the show’s director Matthew Warchus, who has created a musical rich in stage magic that appeals to every age. In fact, adults will enjoy and appreciate the show’s clever humour and wordplay just as much as kids.

The production design by Rob Howell and choreographed by Peter Darling play a huge role in making Matilda what it is. Hugh Vanstone created the show’s extraordinarily atmospheric lighting, helping set the perfect mood for every story beat.

The Story

Matilda’s parents believe she is a nuisance while she thinks they are only interested in watching the television. Life at school isn't much better thanks to the monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull. The headmistress terrifies both students and teachers alike until one day Matilda discovers she has a very special power. She decides it's time to teach the grown-ups a lesson. She also develops an unlikely friendship with her teacher Miss Honey, who admires Matilda’s intellect and almost magical abilities. As the plot progresses, the musical explores the relationship between Matilda and Miss Honey, and Matilda’s desire for freedom.
