Matilda The Musical is up for the Magic Radio Audience Award, part of this year’s Laurence Olivier Awards. This is the only Olivier to be decided entirely by public vote, so now’s your chance to have your say.

As Matilda holds the current World Record for the number of Olivier Award wins, with a splendiferous seven awards, winning an eighth would set a whole new record and rewrite the record books!

You can vote for Matilda The Musical here (until 12:00 on Friday 11th March).

Matilda and Me

Matilda and Me airs Sunday 3rd April at 7.40pm on ABC.

Narrated by Tim’s sister Nel, who co-directed with Rhian Skirving, Matilda and Me tells the story of Matilda The Musical‘s journey to the Sydney Lyric Theatre, where the Australian production of the global smash hit opened last year.

Through a mix of footage (including some rare family moments), interviews, musical performance and Australian Matilda The Musical rehearsals, Matilda And Me charts Tim’s long-term fascination with Roald Dahl and the intimate relationship that developed between him and the multi-award-winning musical, for which he is now internationally known.

Here’s a little teaser:
