So funny and clever. The leads are all exceptional and it's a rumbustious and enjoyable jaunt. Laugh out loud moments combined with touches of sadness and meanness . A memorable night out for all ages. We loved it. More please!....

Matilda is so much fun - this was the first time I had seen the musical and it didn't matter that I didn't know any of the songs. The stage is incredible!

We all loved this... 6 years old, to 48! We loved this show! The actors, the ingenious set, everything! We could not fault the show, every last actor put their heart into the show and the set was spectacular. Worth every penny.

We have not always loved musicals starring child actors/actresses, (e.g. Billy Elliot) but thought this was terrific. Even our two teenaged boys (who generally hate musicals) thought it was "ok" and "better than expected". From them, this is truly a high complement. The kids in the show were consummate professionals. There had been an unanticipated and momentary show stoppage during... More

So having seen this once, we knew we were going to enjoy it. But this time we loved it!! The cast are fantastic, the actors are sharp, energetic and slick. The whole cast (children and adults) work together seamlessly to have you believe every second of the performance. The direction and choreography is some of the most inventive and creative... More

My favourite Roald Dahl book growing up did not disappoint on stage. Superb musical with good songs and fun, relaxed feeling.
