Matilda hits Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth!

As the Australian Cast of Matilda The Musical premiered in Melbourne, the Royal Shakespeare Company announced that the production will play seasons in Brisbane and Perth.

Winner of over 50 major international awards, including 13 for Best Musical, Matilda continues to thrill audiences in London, on Broadway, on tour around the USA. It made its Official Melbourne Premiere on Thursday 17th March at the Princess Theatre, and tickets are currently on sale for performances through to 13 July 2016 through Ticketmaster.

Matilda will play Brisbane’s Lyric Theatre at QPAC from November 2016 and Perth’s Crown Theatre from February 2017 with ticketing details to follow.

Matilda The Musical is based on the beloved novel by best-selling author Roald Dahl. It is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

Having proven an enormous success internationally, where productions continue to play to packed houses and capture the imagination of young and old alike, Matilda The Musical opened to unqualified rave reviews in Sydney last year. The Daily Review described the production as “nothing short of a miracle”. The Australian said the show “makes you want to punch the air with delight.” and Time Out Sydney pronounced the show “a freaking masterpiece.”

Matilda The Musical is directed by Tony Award® winner Matthew Warchus (God of Carnage), who helms this production with a book by Tony Award®-winning playwright Dennis Kelly and music and lyrics by Australian Tim Minchin.

Matilda The Musical’s award-winning success includes sweeping the board at the 2012 Laurence Olivier Awards in London with a record-breaking seven awards, and winning four Tony Awards® and a Tony Honor for Excellence in the Theater for each of the four girls sharing the title role on Broadway in 2013.

Matilda The Musical is produced in Australia by the Royal Shakespeare Company, Louise Withers, Michael Coppel & Michael Watt with André Ptaszynski and Denise Wood as Executive Producers.
