Matilda The Musical
Matilda is a children’s novel by British author Roald Dahl, first published in 1988, with illustrations by Quentin Blake. The story is about Matilda Wormwood, an exceptional child with ordinary and rather unpleasant parents, who are disdainful of their daughter’s extraordinary talents.
The book was adapted into an audio reading by Joely Richardson, followed by a film in 1996, and a two-part adaptation for BBC Radio. In 2010 it was adapted into a musical, where it premiered at the RSC’s The Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in November 2010, playing to sold-out audiences before transferring to London’s West End, opening at the Cambridge Theatre in October 2011.
Matilda The Musical went on to smash theatreland records when it won a total of seven awards at the 2012 Laurence Olivier Awards, gaining its place in the Book of Guinness World Records for Most Laurence Olivier award wins.
In Spring 2013 Matilda The Musical opened on Broadway at the Shubert Theatre produced by the RSC and the Dodgers.
