2 adults, 2 kids (12, 8), boy and girl - and everyone left the theatre smiling and happy: it's not often we find a show we all love, but this one was a hit. So much so, we've returned a second time. Excellent

This musical is greatly overpriced for what it offers. The theatre is very large and the acoustics leave much to be desired. A great deal of the dialogue was unintelligible especially in the first half of the play and I was hugely disappointed with the staging of the play. Musically the play really came to life in the second half... More

The audio was a bit soft, could not hear that well. Very energetic show. The performers were very professional and gave a tremendous performance. There was a lot of humour and good songs as well. Loved it.

A fabulous show and cast! We took a family party of 9 to this in December last year. Everyone from the 8 year old to the almost eighty year old loved it.

Now in my top five musicals. I've seen a lot of shows and as a theatre designer have worked on some too but this show is creative from start to finish.

I went with a work group and was worried it would be too kiddish! But was surprised and delighted at the talent. The children are so young and have great vocals and tremendous acting abilities. We were all very impressed. I liked that the show started at 7 pm. The show goes by very quickly and you never get bored.

Wonderful in every way, and I wasn't the biggest fan of Matilda as a book! The set was amazing and the story was adapted very well. The characters were incredible and no doubt we will see those young people in lots more big roles.
