Guinness World Records, accepted as the global authority on record-breaking achievement, today announced the theatre additions to 57th edition of the world’s best-selling copyright book, Guinness World Records 2013.

Back in April, having received the maximum possible ten nominations, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Matilda The Musical, skipped away with SEVEN 2012 Laurence Olivier Awards! This amazing achievement is a record haul for a single show and secured the Guinness World Record for Most Laurence Olivier award wins. This sweeps the title from the 1980 production of Nicholas Nickleby, also a Royal Shakespeare Company production, which had held the record, with six Olivier awards, for more than 20 years.

The seven Oliviers won by Matilda The Musical included Best New Musical with Matthew Warchus winning Best Director. Rob Howells claimed Best Set Design, Simon Baker Best Sound Design and Peter Darling Best Theatre Choreographer. Members of the cast triumphed too with Best Actor in a Musical for Bertie Carvel, as Miss Trunchbull, and Best Actress in a Musical was shared by the four Matildas: Cleo Demetriou, Kerry Ingram, Sophia Kiely and Eleanor Worthington-Cox, who at ten years of age, is the youngest ever winner of an Olivier Award

The inclusion of Matilda The Musical in the 2013 edition coincides with Roald Dahl Day on 13th September 2012.

Tim is to make his Sydney Theatre Company (STC) debut performing, with Toby Schmitz, in Tom Stoppard’s absurdist, existentialist tragicomedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, directed by Simon Phillips.

Tim and Toby have a history together, having met way back in the olden days when Tim was 17 and Toby, 15. In 1996, Tim and Toby played the minor characters of The Player and Hamlet, respectively, in a University of Western Australia (UWA) production of Rosencrantz and Guilderstern are Dead, directed by Gen Hegney and Luke Cowling, at the Dolphin Theatre, Perth. They (along with Travis Cotton) also co-wrote a musical called This Blasted Earth, which they put on in 2004.

6th August to 7th September 2013 they’ll be reunited (’cause it feels so good) in the title roles for the 2013 Sydney Theatre season. Visit the Sydney Theatre Company website for further information and tickets* although at the moment tickets are only available to purchase as part of a 2013 Season Ticket package.

Tim says: “I adore Stoppard, I adore this play, and Toby and I love working together. So when Luke (Cowling – who co-directed the UWA version) suggested that we should try to play the title roles opposite each other, I got very excited. Eventually the idea ended up with the STC who in turn suggested the incredible Simon Phillips as director. I’ve known for some time that it was going to happen, but now it’s actually been officially announced, I can properly start shitting myself. With fear, as well as excitement.”

* Note: The STC website seems to be having some problems so if you can’t access the information, please give it a few minutes and then try again.

UPDATE: The first single tickets for the STC 2013 season go on sale Monday 11th Feb 2013..
