Matilda the Musical – Roald Dahl at his very best, a huge treat for the kids
Kids adore Roald Dahl stories and their irreverent attitude to the weird and illogical world of adults. Generations of children have delighted in his characters’ antics and Matilda the Musical is no different. It’s a splendid romp with Matilda right at the centre of the mixed up, crazy adult world that seems to fight her at every turn.
The musical is presented by the wonderful Royal Shakespeare Company, and has delighted countless thousands of show-goers, young and old, since it hit the West End stage.
You’ll never forget the classic tale of Matilda, a gifted child who manages to enjoy life and have enormous fun despite her awful, uncaring parents. All Matilda’s mum wants to do is dance, and she’s totally obsessed with ballroom dancing. Her dad is a foolish man who is convinced that Matilda’s love of books will be the end of her. And there’s no escape at school either. The equally dreadful school headmistress is only interested in imprisoning children - she’s as cold as ice.
Luckily for Matilda, she has a very special and unusual ability. And it’s the one thing that’ll save her…
With a lively, hilarious script by Bafta-nominated Dennis Kelly and crazy tunes – with deliciously silly lyrics – by the Australian comedian and musician Tim Minchin, it’ll have you rocking in your seats with helpless giggles, whatever your age.
Sing along to quirky tunes like Miracle, Naughty, School Song, Pathetic, The Hammer, The Chokey Chant, Loud, Revolting Children and many more, all songs you’ll find yourself humming under your breath when you get home, and for weeks afterwards. It’s refreshing, huge fun and a treat for children of every age.
