Matilda The Musical

‘Matilda The Musical’ to reopen in London’s West End this September

The RSC’s West End production of Matilda The Musical will resume performances at the Cambridge Theatre in London this September.

Adapted from Roald Dahl’s much loved 1988 book and commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, the musical is written by Dennis Kelly and features music and lyrics by Tim Minchin, and direction by Matthew Warchus.

Widely considered to be one of the most iconic British musicals of the last decade, this anarchic production about a strong and determined heroine with a vivid imagination will resume performances on 16 September 2021.

Now entering its 10th years in the West End, Matilda The Musical premiered at the RSC’s Stratford-upon-Avon home in 2010, before transferring to the West End in October 2011, where it opened to rave reviews.

Matilda The Musical swept the board at the 2012 Olivier Awards, with a record-breaking seven awards, and won four Tony Awards and a Tony Honor for Excellence in the Theater for the four girls sharing the title role on Broadway.

Catherine Mallyon, RSC Executive Director said “It is fantastic to see London’s West End re-opening and for our company, freelance colleagues, and creative team to be back at the Cambridge Theatre, preparing for performances in the autumn. We all know how challenging the past year has been, and that makes this moment even more special and important. We will not only celebrate 10 brilliant years of Matilda The Musical in the West End but also that our audiences can join us once again to experience the power of live theatre.

The much loved tale will soon be gracing the big screen with a new film adaptation underway by the same core creative team of Dennis Kelly, Tim Minchin and Matthew Marchus.

Casting for the West End production is to be announced.

Tickets for Matilda The Musical are now available.

Matilda The Musical is booking from 16 September 2021 until 13 February 2022 at the Cambridge Theatre, London.
