Matilda was written by Dennis Kelly, with lyrics and music by Tim Minchin, and directed and developed by Matthew Warchus. The production has choreography by Peter Darling, designed by Rob Howell, with additional music, orchestrations, and musical supervision by Christopher Nightingale, sound by Simon Baker, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, and illusions and special effects by Paul Kieve.

This anarchic stage production about a young, strong, and determined heroine with a vivid imagination takes its inspiration from Roald Dahl’s 1988 novel Matilda which was also adapted into a 1996 movie, directed by and starring Danny DeVito.


Booking & Theatre Info For Matilda The Musical

The Cambridge Theatre is a medium size West End theatre located on Earlham Street in Covent Garden and has three levels of seating with a capacity of 1242 seats.

The theatre benefits from having very little restricted view seating thanks to there being no support pillars or obstructive rails within the auditorium and with its plush seating and carpeting, the Cambridge Theatre is considered to be one of the most comfortable venues in the West End.

Premium seating can be found in rows B and C of the Dress Circle providing excellent elevated views of the stage and also in the centre of the Stalls section for a more immersive theatrical experience!

Value for money can be found in the Upper Circle which offers excellent views of the stage, and the front section is an excellent vantage point that does not feel distant from the stage. The second and third rows in the centre provide the clearest views and are often discounted making them ideal for bargain hunters or patrons on a budget looking to secure cheap Matilda tickets.
