It will give you the the story so far as well as videos and handy links, including to the dedicated Matilda, A Musical website where you can sign up for future news directly from the RSC and to the Matilda sub-forum on Tim’s official fansite if you’re keen and a little bit naughty…

Coming to the UK from PERTH, W.Australia checked out video of your stage play and it looks fantastic! My sons are very excited as have read all the Roald Dahl books and particularly both love Matilda and the movie! (infact they call me Mrs trungball) Nice I know. Only in uk short time 1st to 23rd Oct. Tried to get tickets from 18th to 22nd (seems all booked out)! Is there anyway I can get tickets for any of the above dates or is it still running at any other theatres! Please help!!

Is audition still active for this musical?

Alistair Clark on 14th of April 2011

We are glad to see RSC doing work other than only Shakespeare and feel you should take more productions on tour to Manchester !

Rob on 7th of April 2011

great news – can I audition for Miss Trunchbull?

Lotti B on 2nd of April 2011

Wonderful news! Was lucky enough to be at the first preview night las November, and had a fabulous time – can’t wait to see the show again and I urge everyone to do the same!

Lou on 31st of March 2011

Yay for this!!! I’ve had my fingers crossed for this since I saw the show in January – bit worried about the circulation actually, but the news of a west end transfer more than makes up for the loss of a couple of digits.

Great, 3 generations of us loved this in stratford in the snow.
First class reminding this granma of the pleasure seeing Joseph and the Technecolour Dreamcoat many years ago with family.

Katie B on 31st of March 2011

Fantastic and so well deserved. Worked the show for the RSC and can’t wait to see it as a theatre patron. Thanks for a wonderful production all.

janet hardy on 31st of March 2011

Saw it twice at Stratford, both superb evenings! Will be booking for London

Jo Dean on 31st of March 2011

We saw it twice! Loved it so much during the previews, we had to travel ‘oop north’ to see it again. And we paid full price the second time. It is a genius of a musical. Desperate for the CD! When is it coming?? Well done Tim. All the best to you

Chris on 31st of March 2011

Fantastic. We saw Matilda between Christmas & New Year, and it is the best experience at the theatre I think I’ve ever had, or ever will have. Brilliantly staged, wonderful music, amazing performances, terrific script & songs. It deserves to run and run and run…

I wrote a review on my blog in case anyone needs any more convincing… http://wp.me/pwAYF-kg

Archie & Coco on 30th of March 2011

Your music deserves to be shown in one of the greatest areas of the musical theatre world. You’re literally the best composer and inspiring lyricist ever. Congrats! You’re so [email protected] rock!
