About Matilda the Musical

Matilda is the tale of a small girl with a big imagination who soon learns she has very special magical powers.

Tell Me More

Based on the beloved children’s classic by Roald Dahl, the Matilda musical tells the story of a young girl who was always smarter than everybody in the room. In fact, she was smarter than most people in most rooms. But Matilda wasn’t born into a family who could appreciate her specialness. She was the daughter of the Wormwoods - a ballroom dancing obsessed mother and a crooked used car salesman father. Book Matilda the Musical tickets in London now.

The local librarian, however, finds Matilda’s wild imagination and storytelling abilities to be a gift, and the sensitive school teacher, Miss Honey, sees a bright future for Matilda. Can Miss Honey protect Matilda from the inauspicious headmistress, Miss Trunchbull? A cruel and abusive woman, she rules her school with an iron fist. Matilda has had enough though, and begins exhibiting new and exciting powers that might just even the playing field between kids and grown ups.

With music and lyrics by comedian Tim Minchin, Matilda songs like “When I Grow Up” and “Naughty” will definitely become your new favourites. Matilda is full of magic and is a wonderful family show for all ages. Don't be one of the "Revolting Children" and see Matilda in London.

What to Watch For

  • When Miss Honey and Matilda sit down together for the song “My House”, they drink cups of tea. But did you know they're actually cups of tea? How very British!
  • To create Bruce Bogtrotter’s forbidden chocolate cake, the show uses over 100 tubs of delicious chocolate spread every year. We wish we could have a slice.
  • At certain points in Matilda, audiences can hear a male voice-over - it’s actually the voice of the show’s writer, Dennis Kelly.
  • Renowned children’s book artist and longtime Roald Dahl collaborator, Quentin Blake, designed the Crunchem Hall School badge you can see on the blazers of the children.
  • In one year, the Matilda production in London will use around 12 million pieces of confetti.
