Matilda the Musical
The loveable (and not so loveable!) characters of Roald Dahl’s much-adored book come to life in this exciting musical written by Dennis Kelly and comedian Tim Minchin. The kids will be mesmerised by the dips and turns of this exciting story we all know and love – from the terrifying Miss Trunchball to the sweet songs of Miss Honey’s class alike. However, this is something that not just the kids will enjoy, as everyone can remember their first Roald Dahl book – even the parents among us!
The musical runs from Tuesday to Saturday at the Cambridge Theatre and you can book tickets here.
