WHAT'S ON AT THE CAMBRIDGE THEATRE


Matilda the MusicalRoald Dahl’s children’s novel Matilda was first published in 1988.  It has now been made into a musical which was produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company and played in Stratford last year to great critical acclaim. The show has a book by Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Tim Minchin

Matilda is the story of a very bright and rebellious little girl who has special powers. Her parents, Mr and Mrs Wormwood, have no time for her and treat her as a nuisance so she spends most of her time reading books from the library while they ignore her and watch the television.

Things are no better for her at school despite the care and support of the lovely Miss Honey who is her teacher.  It is here that Matilda has to contend with the terrifying and cruel headmistress Miss Trunchbull.

Matilda the Musical starts previews on 18th October and opens on 22nd November
