It’s a tale of courage, inspiration, determination and grit! It’s “Matilda The Musical” told with the creativity and cleverness you have come to expect from Limelight. 

Matilda, a precocious 5-year-old girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers - she's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly lovable Miss Honey. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination. Plus, the music is phenomenal and will absolutely leave you wanting more!

Based on the 1988 children's novel of the same name by Roald Dahl, Matilda The Musical was adapted by Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin. The show has received widespread critical acclaim and box-office popularity, winning seven 2012 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical (the most ever won by a single production at the time) and won five Tony Awards, including Best Book of a Musical, along with dozens more international awards.

Limelight Theatre Company promises to present a delightfully offbeat, funny and heartwarming adaptation of this classic adventure in our brand-new intimate black-box theatre (without a bad seat in the house) – you will be up close and personal, part of the action and caught up in the excitement.
