‘AN EVENING OF UNADULTERATED BLISS’
The Guardian, UK
Inspired by the beloved book by Roald Dahl, Matilda The Musical tells the story of a precocious 5-year-old girl who loves reading and learning, but is suppressed by her TV-obsessed parents who pay her little attention. Armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, she dares to take a stand and challenge those above her for the greater good. Her world is again thrown into disarray as she starts a new school under the tyrannous grip of Head teacher Miss Trunchbull. Seeking solace in the library in a world of her imagination and creation, Matilda forms strong bonds with the Librarian Mrs Phelps and her class teacher Miss Honey. Together they give her the confidence to embrace her special gift and individuality which is needed to reclaim her life.
With an incredible cast of young performers, Matilda The Musical inspires and delights audiences both young and old.
This will be the very first time Matilda The Musical visits Hong Kong, following its well-received Singapore debut in early 2019. The show has also toured to Australia and New Zealand from 2015-2017.
