“Very enjoyable show”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We went mother and daughter ( aged 26 ) to see the show and loved it. The songs may not be memorable but it is a slick well performed show. The children were amazing especially Matilda. Nice theatre not too big.Liked the scenery especially around the stage.

“Thoroughly enjoyable.”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Not aware of this story before seeing the show. Really professional and slick performance, with lots of ahh moments from watching the young people perform. Some problems catching all the words in the songs. Would help if some of the cast didn't have cockney or even Essex accents. Needs an interpreter for us Northerners!! But the choreography was first-rate, and as an overall spectacle it was well worth seeing.

“Disappointing after rave reviews.”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

I don't know if we were unlucky with the cast on our night, but Mrs Wormwood just screeched all the time - this was not acting. Matilda's little friend acted like an American stage school brat. The songs were totally unmemorable. However Matilda and Miss Trunchbull were excellent, and Mr Wormwood was good too. We felt that the whole production made the children over- confident and bratty, as this is not what they are like in the book.
