The show that’s being called the “standout musical of the decade” is about to hit our shores and we can’t wait to see it! Matilda the Musical is based on Roald Dahl’s beloved book Matilda, about a very special young girl.
If you’re like us and last read Matilda a while ago, here’s a quick refresher. Matilda Wormwood is super smart and an avid reader. Unfortunately her family are ignorant and her headmistress – the delectably evil Mrs Trunchbull who declares that “children are maggots” – make her life awful. That’s until she discovers that she has a very special talent… Telekinesis!
Song and dance
The classic has been adapted for the stage with fun music by Tim Minchin and jaw-dropping settings. Watch the trailer of the international sensation.
While this is a children’s story, taller kids (i.e. grownups) will love it. It’s a bit dark in places, so not suitable for very little ones.
Matilda the Musical is showing at Montecasino from 17 October to 2 December. Get your tickets!
