What is Matilda The Musical about?

Adapted from Roald Dahl’s beloved book by Dennis Kelly, with music from award-winning musician and comedian Tim Minchin, the London show thrills children and adults alike, with the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Matilda's parents think she is a nuisance and life is not much better at school, where the monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies both students and teachers. Then one day, Matilda discovers she has a very special power and decides it's time the grown-ups were taught a lesson.

How long is it?

Matilda The Musical lasts for 2 hours and 35 minutes with a 20-minute interval.

Where is it?

Matilda The Musical is currently playing at the Cambridge Theatre in London.

Is there an age restriction?

The theatre suggests taking children aged 6 and above, but younger guests are welcome too. The show is fairly long, quite loud in parts and can be scary.

Children need to occupy their own seats throughout the performance. Babies in arms are not permitted.
