Matilda The Musical is an absolute “must see“
With 7 Olivier Awards tucked under it’s belt, Matilda The Musical is a hilarious and terrifically staged production based on the universally loved book by Roald Dahl. Its instantly memorable music and witty lyrics are written by Australian comedian Tim Minchin.
Matilda is the story of a young girl with very annoying parents, an amazing imagination and a rather surprising special talent. When she is sent to a school run by a domineering headmistress, Matilda needs to call on all her powers to help her friends at the school escape the tyranny of Miss Agatha Trunchbull.
Children and adults on our Matilda Theatre Breaks will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Matilda Theatre Breaks and Hotels
The excellent 5 star deluxe Waldorf Hilton is near the theatre but let’s face it, if your mum and dad didn’t treat you to a night at a five star hotel when you were young, if you are looking for a family night out, that is probably not the hotel for you. Luckily Matilda is not just a family musical and is the perfect highlight to a five star theatre break for you and your partner (without the kids!
Also there’s the 4 star deluxe Grange Clarendon which is a nice hotel. With the Cambridge Theatre being so close to Covent Garden tube station it is a good idea to look for hotels in Kensington. You can easily get there by tube or bus and the hotels are even cheaper.

I was fortunate to see the original Matilda twice. Once in Stratford-upon-Avon with a group of adults (all of whom enjoyed the show) and then later on with my two boys. They were aged 9 and 11yrs at the time. Both shows were faultless, but seeing my children enjoy it so much edged the second viewing into top spot. We have since seen it in London too. Still just as entertaining as the first time around.
I loved Matilda. The girl playing her was fantastic and all the characters just like I imagined reading the book. I especially liked Bruce when he was eating the cake. My favourite line is "don't let a little thing like 'little' stop you!" I want to see it again.
Well, what a brilliant time we had last night at Matilda the Musical. We had much better seats than we did in Stratford and it made all the difference. The children loved, I loved it, the audience loved it. Standing ovation for Kerry Ingram who played Matilda and another standing ovation for whole cast. All came out happy and smiley. Can't say enough good things about this show. It really is the one to watch this year and now on until October 2012.
