Matilda The Musical

It’s been announced that the West End show Matilda The Musical will begin on its first UK and Ireland tour from March 2018 through to 2019.

The tour will launch at Leicester Curve on 5th March 2018 and will visit other locations including Dublin, Sutherland, Milton Keynes, Manchester and Cardiff.

Further dates and locations are to be announced.

The production is produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company and currently in its sixth year in the West End, making it the longest running production at the Cambridge Theatre.


Matilda The Musical follows the story of a young girl who is constantly overlooked and belittled by her cruel parents, the Wormwoods, and her terrifying headmistress Miss Trunchbull.  

As she dreams for a better life, her unique abilities see her stand out and fight for what she wants and change her own destiny.

The musical has a book by Dennis Kelly, original songs by Tim Minchin, and is directed by Matthew Warchus.

The show is inspired by the popular children’s novel Matilda by author Roald Dahl.

Dennis Kelly, said: “It’s been a long time coming but I’m delighted that we get to take Matilda around the UK and to Ireland. We have some fantastic theatres in this country and in Ireland, supported by smart, engaged audiences and we can’t wait to bring this crazy, messy, anarchic explosion of a show to them.”
