Inspired by the Roald Dahl books, Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical swept the board at the 2012 Olivier Awards, with a record-breaking seven awards, and won four Tony Awards and a Tony Honor for Excellence in the Theater on Broadway.

Commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company and premiered at the RSC’s Stratford-upon-Avon home in November 2010, Matilda The Musical transferred to London’s West End in October 2011 and to Broadway two years later.
