Tim was interviewed for How Roald Dahl Shaped Pop, a documentary about Roald Dahl’s influence on pop music, narrated by David Tennant, with contributions from Kate Nash and Kelly Jones of the Stereophonics.

It will air at 10pm this evening, 22nd November on Radio 2.

In the meantime here’s Miss Trunchbull *gulp* to tell you about RULES in this wonderful new trailer for Matilda:

Anybody start dancing in their chairs to the last few bars at the end of that? Huh?…oh neither did I… in fact my shoulders and elbows never moved and my head didn’t tilt once…

You can book tickets for the show via the Matilda A Musical website, where you’ll find lots of information, rehearsal blogs, games, videos and much more. This video and more are also available through the RSC’s YouTube channel or the ‘Favourites’ section of Tim’s own YouTube channel.

We’ve heard a lot of people saying how they’ve “missed out” on tickets to see Tim on his magnificent UK orchestra arena tour this year. Well we’ve got some good news for you: you haven’t!

If you’ve been seeing “Sold out” or “Tickets unavailable” on ticketing websites that’s simply because that particular company doesn’t have any of their ticket allocation left, but there are plenty out there that still do! In fact, we’ve put together a nice list of links from where you can still buy tickets, to make your purchasing a lot less painful!

Birmingham – 8th Dec 2010

Newcastle – 11th Dec 2010

Brighton – 13th Dec 2010

London – 14th Dec 2010

Cardiff – 16th Dec 2010

Manchester – 17th Dec 2010

Nottingham – 18th Dec 2010

Edinburgh – 17th April 2011

Glasgow – 18th April 2011

Aberdeen – 19th April 2011

And, of course, there are various other ticket agencies still with tickets left including:

HMV Tickets
Ticketline
Ticketzone
Seetickets
Ticketmaster

And if none of these links are providing you with the tickets you seek, ring the venue’s box office (phone numbers are on the gigs page) and they should be able to point you in the direction of some!

You have pre-ordered Tim’s new DVD haven’t you?

If you have, feel free to give yourself a pat on the back. Please enjoy the trailer below as your reward.

If you haven’t, why not? It’s out a week on Monday! Oh, it’s because you haven’t seen enough teasers, is it? Well the trailer below might just whet your appetite enough to go and order it then.

Terry Stiasny recorded a piece about Matilda, A Musical last week and it is scheduled to go out today, Weds 17 November at 5pm on the PM Programme – Radio 4. There is no mention of it on that BBC site as yet but you’ll be able to listen live via that link, if you wish, or later using iPlayer, once it’s aired, if you miss it or wish to confirm the item was included before tuning in.

EDIT: Our apologies: This item was re-scheduled at the last minute (how very dare they!) and is now due to air on the PM Programme tomorrow Thursday 18th November, at the same time and will therefore be available on iPlayer after that. (I’d say “fingers crossed” but we don’t hold with all that around these parts do we? Anyway it’s damned uncomfortable!)

In addition to that, according to a BBC Press Office release, Tim will be interviewed about Matilda, A Musical by Claudia Winkleman, during The New Radio 2 Arts Show on Friday 19th November at 10pm.

The BBC Press Office says:
“Claudia also speaks to Australian comedian, musician and composer Tim Minchin. Tim has written the music and lyrics to Matilda: A Musical, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s forthcoming production of Roald Dahl’s magical story about a little girl with extraordinary powers; a favourite novel for children across the world since it was first published in 1988.”

There has already been a great response to the show, which began previewing last week, on the 9th November, with many loving it so much that they immediately booked to see it again! Later today the RSC will be adding some vox pops, recorded with audience members as they left the theatre, to the Matilda A Musical website. EDIT: The direct link to these vids is here.

You can book tickets for the show via the Matilda A Musical website, where you’ll find lots of information, rehearsal blogs, games, videos and much more. The videos are also available through the RSC’s YouTube channel or the ‘Favourites’ section of Tim’s own YouTube channel.

As part of the preparation for his upcoming Arena Orchestra Tour Tim will be performing two intimate warm up gigs at The Junction, Cambridge on the 23rd and 24th of November 2010.

Tickets are £15.00 and can be booked via the Box Office on: 01223 511 511 or here via The Junction Website.

This is an opportunity to see Tim perform his brand new songs and some of our old favourites with his band: Pete and Brad – obviously chosen for their looks as well as their musicianship…

Grab them while you can!

I mean the tickets… streuth!
