The Story

The story tells the life of a young girl, Matilda. The musical begins with her birth and moves on to describe her unhappy upbringing as she lives with her TV-addicted family and bears their constant abuse. She is an intelligent child who loves reading even though her family believes that it is a complete waste of one’s time. Due to the abuse she faces Matilda often plays pranks on people aided by her telekinetic powers. Matilda even plays pranks on her school’s headmistress, Mrs Trunchbull whom she believes to be a bully. Soon, she develops a strong friendship with her teacher Miss Honey, who admires Matilda’s intellect and almost magical abilities. The story progresses to explore the relationship between Matilda and Miss Honey, and Matilda’s desire for freedom. To watch it all unfold, book Matilda The Musical tickets now.

Ticketing was easy. Mathilde was fantastic. But the crowd there disrespectful. People were eating something, checking messages, stepping over the chairs. Eventually when the ice-cream guy came, I allowed my kid to by an ice cream as well because it just didn't matter anymore and that is sad.
