The other young performers announced today, who play the rest of the pupils at Crunchem Hall, are as follows: Lois Abercrombie, Tom Brown, Emilia Bosi, Toby Brandon, Quincy Miller-Cole, Lottie Cook, Imogen Darwen, Jimmy Fordham Reed, Clara Freeman Alves, Stella Haden, Jobe Hart, Noah Leggott, Archie Lewis, Henry Littell, Austen Phelan, Marley Quinlan-Gardner, Daisy Statham, Cherry Vaughn-White and Rochelle Wyatt.

Matilda The Musical is Matthew Warchus (director), Dennis Kelly (book) and Tim Minchin’s (music & lyrics) multi-Olivier Award winning smash-hit, based on Roald Dahl’s renowned tale of school-based mischief and mirth.

It tells the tale of the incredibly gifted Matilda Wormwood, whose parents mistreat her despite her consistent scholarly excellence. When Matilda discovers she possesses a magical talent, the young Matilda sets out to teach them a lesson – but will she be able to do the same to the terrifying and tyrannical headmistress Miss Trunchbull?

If the news gets you revolting for tickets, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s musical is currently booking at the Cambridge Theatre until 20 October 2019.
