Theatre Tickets and Hotel Packages

Winner of a record-breaking seven Olivier Awards in 2012

Winner of four Tony Awards

Roald Dahl's gleefully twisted stories have been must-reads for almost every British child since the early 1960s; now you can see Matilda — among the best loved of those stories — brought to life onstage at the Cambridge Theatre.

Featuring an incredible cast and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical is a laugh-out-loud family musical suitable for the young, the old, and everyone in-between.

The well-loved story sees a brilliant but tragically-overlooked little girl take on a world of villainous grown-ups with a little bit of help from her enormous brain, her newly-discovered magic powers and a kind-hearted teacher named Miss Honey.

The talented child performers take turns in the limelight so that four Matildas get the chance to shine on stage every week. With a spellbinding score featuring Tim Minchin's characteristic tongue-twisting, witty wordplay, plus buoyant choreography, outlandish set-pieces and a whole lot of family fun, Matilda the Musical in London is one show that you won't want to miss.

Matilda's record haul of seven Olivier Awards makes it the must-see musical of the moment, and you can find out what all the fuss is about by taking in the Royal Shakespeare Company's production at the Cambridge Theatre, where the set is delightfully done up to transport you immediately to Dahl's imaginative world.

Reviews

It is the best new British musical since Billy Elliot.

Charles Spencer, The Telegraph

Writer Dennis Kelly and composer and lyricist Tim Minchin go to the top of the class with this anarchically joyous, gleefully nasty and ingenious musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's story

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

An absolute cracker of a show, bursting with dynamism, fizzing with verve and packed full of slightly naughty children swung around by their pigtails played by incredible child actors who perform their socks off.

Julie Carpenter, The Express
