Based on the 1988 children’s novel by best-selling author Roald Dahl, Matilda: The Musical charts the journey of the young, gifted Matilda Wormwood. Matilda is an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind whose talents are constantly belittled by her cruel parents and headmistress. Dreaming of a better life for herself, she dares to take a stand against these oppressive forces and takes her destiny into her own hands. With a book by Dennis Kelly and a score by Tim Minchin, Matilda won a record-breaking seven 2012 Olivier Awards, including Best Musical, after making its West End premiere with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
