Matilda

Sometimes, you have to be a little bit naughty! Tim Minchin perfectly captures Roald Dahl's anarchic spirit in this imaginative musical adventure about a resourceful girl and one of children's literature's most formidable villains, Miss Trunchbull. A pleasure to share, whether it's someone's first ever theatre trip, or their 100th.
