What's it all about?

Matilda the Musical is one of the West End's most successful and popular productions, having won seven Olivier Awards including Best New Musical, giving it the record for the most Olivier Awards won by a musical. Matilda has also been a hit on Broadway, taking home five Tony Awards, and is one of the most successful British musicals in recent history.

Produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, this heart-warming musical is based on the classic children's book by Roald Dahl, and follows the precocious heroine Matilda as she struggles with her family and her evil Headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. To overcome these obstacles, she decides to be a “little bit naughty” and soon discovers that she possesses an extraordinary gift.

Featuring a sharp and witty book by Dennis Kelly and a thoroughly original score by comedian Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical has delighted audiences from all over the world. The extraordinarily talented cast of adults and children tell this 'underdog' tale in a highly visual and imaginative way that will have you gripped to your seats in amazement.  

What's the story?

Matilda Wormwood is born special. At the age of five she has already begun to read adult books at the library and has shown an accelerated thirst for knowledge. Ignored by her family, the trashy used car salesman Mr Wormwood and his equally vacuous wife, Matilda begins school with excitement to escape her dull family life.

Her special gift doesn't go unnoticed as her teacher, Miss Honey, forms a close bond with Matilda and the two quickly become close friends. Their school is terrorised by the Headmistress, Miss Agatha Trunchbull who takes an instant dislike to Matilda and keeps the children and staff in check by unbelievable methods of punishment.

As Matilda finds out that Miss Honey is actually Miss Trunchbull's niece and has stolen her house and inheritance, the young genius decides it is time to teach the tyrant a lesson. She soon discovers she has a special skill that she plans to put to use in the ultimate 'David and Goliath' story.

Who's in it?

Matilda the Musical features a highly talented cast of children and adults who bring Matilda's world to life. Craige Els currently stars as Miss Trunchbull, alongside Haley Flaherty as Miss Honey, James Clyde as Mr Wormwood and a rotating cast of children.

Matilda the Musical reviews - staff

The stage is amazing - so much detail. Special effects were great. The show overall was fantastic, great actors, great story changes and the Miss Trunchbull adaptation was hilarious!


I was totally thrilled from beginning to end, every cast member was outstanding and the set just brilliant. The special effects - which I have been told since last night was done by the same guy or team that worked on Harry Potter and Ghost - well, what a genius. The show had so much packed into it. The children danced and performed with perfect timing and Matilda was - as they say in the show - just magical.


I was a bit sceptical about attending a musical based on one of my favourite Roald Dahl books but I left the Cambridge Theatre with a huge smile on my face. Matilda - The Musical is one of the best West End shows that I have seen in recent times. The children were brilliant and the Trunchbull was truly terrifying.  The show also contained clever staging and some very funny moments which made for a hugely entertaining evening.

Matilda the Musical reviews - most recent customers

We all thoroughly enjoyed Matilda. It was funny, sad, & surprising. All the cast were great especially Matilda.

My wife and myself enjoyed the musical Matilda and we thought the children in the cast were excellent.

Although the staging, the choreography and the overall experience were all brilliant, the standout revelation was the quality of the child actors - each and every one believable and exciting to watch. Highly recommended.

the show was fantastic, all the children were great and for a lot of them it was their first night, i would recomend this show to anyone.

Amazing, unbelievable, everything from the performers to the stage production blew me away. As soon as I left I wanted to see it again.

It was great we really enjoyed it. Matilda was super as were all the supporting cast. A wonderful afternoons entertainment.
