The Story

The story tells the life of a young girl, Matilda. The musical begins with her birth and moves on to describe her unhappy upbringing as she lives with her TV-addicted family and bears their constant abuse. She is an intelligent child who loves reading even though her family believes that it is a complete waste of one’s time. Due to the abuse she faces Matilda often plays pranks on people aided by her telekinetic powers. Matilda even plays pranks on her school’s headmistress, Mrs Trunchbull whom she believes to be a bully. Soon, she develops a strong friendship with her teacher Miss Honey, who admires Matilda’s intellect and almost magical abilities. The story progresses to explore the relationship between Matilda and Miss Honey, and Matilda’s desire for freedom. To watch it all unfold, book Matilda The Musical tickets now.

Incredible performance by the actors, stagecraft and set. A great musical! We came away totally blown away by the performance of Arabella S., who plays Matilda. This little girl is dazzling.

I loved everything about my experience except that the theater didn't have wifi so it was difficult to open the link to my ticket.

Fun play! A wonderful option for children. I made the mistake of taking my husband, he did not enjoy as much as I did. Live and learn.

The theatre is so atmospheric and personable. The show was wonderful this time as it was when I took my daughter 10 years ago. This time I took my son with Down's syndrome for his 12th birthday treat. The food and drinks are very expensive but I guess being in central london, it's to be expected. We all particularly loved Mr Trunchballs & Bruce's performance. Also Mrs Wormwood was exceptional. Will definitely return 😄
