Roald Dahl’s much-loved story explodes into life on stage in this incredible, multi-Olivier-Award-winning musical adaptation – Matilda The Musical – by Dennis Kelly and award-winning musician and comedian Tim Minchin.

Life isn’t much better at school, where monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies both students and teachers at random. Then one day Matilda finds out she has a very special power and decides it’s time the grown-ups were taught a lesson. Be warned, the children are revolting…
