I really enjoyed this show and was so impressed with how good all the children were! The show was staged so well and the set design was just stunning. Definitely recommend!!

A great musical for children but enough pace and humour for adults. Great songs. Quirky. Moving. A quality interpretation. You can tell it is RSC.

Really enjoyed the show. The children were fantastic, so confident and talented and they looked as if they were having a great time. The theatre is lovely and there were plenty of seat cushions for the children. The stage design was really clever and made for a very entertaining show. We went as part of the "Kids go free" promotion... More

Perfect choice for families. Amazingly talented young actors and superb music. Would not mind seeing it again next time in London.

We picked this show because we had seen the Mara Wilson film version and had loved it. The Cambridge Theatre is beautiful, the seats comfortable and the lighting and set attractive and very inventive. The lighting effects give the production a quite magical quality. What was most impressive though was how the sets appeared and disappeared out of the floor,... More

Family trip to see the show - Cambridge Theatre is in a such a good setting - The Theatre itself was a good mix of old charm but with comfortable seating and great views - Upper Circle - Stage and Props were really effective - The show was great especially the little girl and her father especially- humour worked on...

This is one of my daughter's favourite musicals to date. Most of the West End musicals we've seen have been exceptional and this did not disappoint. My daughter and I had front row seats so we had optimum viewing and this definately adds to the experience. Like all London musicals, tickets are expensive, but its worth paying extra for premium...

A great show for both myself and my 14 year old niece. The cast was great, Miss Trunchbull was hilarious and the children were brilliant. We had tickets on row A of the upper circle, these were not sold as restricted view, but the safety rail did obstruct the view. Everyone on our row was leaning forwards, stretching up or... More

Brilliant musical, granddaughter was enthralled as were my two daughters, enjoyed by three generations. We were in the upper circle so seats not quite so good but did not spoil our enjoyment. The child actors were very very good. Theatre staff brilliant, all in all an extremely good experience apart from price of ice creams, only to be expected in... More
