Matilda The Musical celebrates 7th West End birthday!

There’s a piece of the rebellious spirit of Matilda The Musical in us all – and that’s just one of many reasons the multi-Olivier Award-winning musical is celebrating its 7 year birthday at the Cambridge Theatre today.

And as the witty Royal Shakespeare Company show enters its eight West End year, it’s released a whole treasure trove of images of the latest Matilda cast in action.

Hayden Tee stars as Miss Trunchbull alongside Rob Compton and Holly Dale Spencer as Mr and Mrs Wormwood, and Gina Beck who joined the company Miss Honey in 2017. Isobel Hubble and Francesca McKeown have joined Sara Munday and Olivia Wells in sharing the title role of Matilda.

And you can see them all strutting their stuff on stage below, thanks to photographer Manuel Harlan.

Having started life premiering at the RSC’s Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2010, Matilda The Musical won a record-breaking (at the time) seven Olivier Awards when it opened in London’s West End in 2011, and four Tony Awards when it subsequently transferred to Broadway in 2013; on both continents, it was named Best New Musical.

The longest running production to play at the Cambridge Theatre in history, it is the winner of a huge number of major international awards. Matilda The Musical has been seen by millions of people worldwide, including London, Australia, New Zealand and on tour in North America.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
