Matilda The Musical brings fun to the West End

I was back in London's West End on Sunday 25th November 2012 when I attended the matinee performance of Matilda The Musical at the Cambridge Theatre. This musical was written by Dennis Kelly with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. There was a wonderful atmosphere at a sold out theatre to see this winner of a record-breaking seven Olivier Awards in 2012, the show has also won five Best Musical awards since its opening when it received 5-star reviews across the board.

Roald Dahl's much-loved story of Matilda bursts into life on stage in this brand new musical version where children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination. Matilda's parents think she is a nuisance and she thinks, quite rightly, they are only interested in watching telly. Life is not much better at school, where the monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies both students and teachers alike. Then one day Matilda discovers she has a very special power and decides it's time the grown-ups were taught a lesson. Be warned, the children are revolting...

This is a fun musical with lots of catchy songs like Naughty, When I Grow Up, The Smell of Rebellion and Revolting Children. There was lots of action on stage as the magic of Roald Dahl was brought to life. This is a story of standing up to bullying by rebellion and protest. Everyone in the audience and on stage had a great time with included lots of laughs for all ages.
