Matilda The Musical London Tickets 

Matilda’s parents think she is a nuisance and she thinks, quite rightly, they are only interested in watching telly. Life is not much better at school, where the monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies both students and teachers alike. Then one day Matilda discovers she has a very special power and decides it's time the grown-ups were taught a lesson. Be warned, the children are revolting!

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, with original songs from comedian Tim Minchin and book by Dennis Kelly, Matilda the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre is the captivating new musical masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dares to change her destiny.

Winner of over 100 international awards, including 24 for Best Musical, and a whole host of five-star reviews, Matilda The Musical continues to delight audiences of all ages. Matilda The Musical tickets are available now, book your Matilda The Musical tickets today.

Matilda Is Living In Revolting Times!

Roald Dahl's timeless children's novel and the much-loved film adaptation directed by Danny DeVito have enchanted the hearts of children across the globe for generations and continue to bring joy to both the young and the young at heart. Matilda The Musical was brought to life by Australian playwright Dennis Kelly and composer and lyricist Tim Minchin. Matilda The Musical made its debut on November 24, 2010, at the Royal Shakespeare Company in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, England, before premiering in the West End in 2011 and eventually making its way to Broadway in 2013.

The songs of Matilda London have become classics in their own right and were so popular, that a Netflix adaptation was released in 2022 to critical and commercial success and starred the likes of Emma Thompson, Stephen Graham and Alisha Weir. Some of the most recognisable songs from Matilda are When I Grow Up, Revolting Children, and Naughty. Matilda The Musical tickets have long been sought after for the show's catchy melodies and breathtaking choreography, and themes that perfectly capture the spirit and defiance of children, make sure to book your Matilda tickets as soon as possible!
