Roald Dahl’s Matilda, The Musical, arrives in London’s West End courtesy of the Royal Shakespeare Company. The winner of 7 Olivier Awards, this production at the Cambridge Theatre has been thrilling audiences and critics alike since 24 November, 2011.
The musical is an adaptation of the book with the same name written by Roald Dahl in 1988. Matilda, The Musical, narrates the story of a little girl who despite not being loved by her parents and being oppressed by her school’s headmistress, develops extraordinary mental capacities. For her entire life, everyone around Matilda has ignored her, but that will all change when she meets her new teacher, the only person who will truly realize the girl’s full potential.
