Big Things Come In Small Packages

The gifted child Matilda, unloved at home but supported by her teacher, tries to rid her school of its evil headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. Based on the Roald Dahl children's book, the hit London production won seven 2012 Olivier Awards, including the esteemed Best New Musical!

Matilda the Musical is based on the beloved children's book by Roald Dahl and features music and lyrics by acclaimed Australian musical comedian, Tim Minchin. This critically-acclaimed musical swept the board at the 2013 Tony Awards, scooping up twelve nominations and four awards, including Best Book of a Musical and Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical for Gabriel Ebert.

What Is Matilda About?

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins to not only recognise but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality.

Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing however - the school's mean headmistress Miss Trunchbull hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules (or those who just annoy her!) like forcing one unfortunate overweight boy to eat an enormous cake in front of the entire school. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!
