Matilda - Dublin Theatre Show Information

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s award-winning production of Matilda The Musical comes to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in what will be one of the biggest theatrical events of 2018.

About Matilda - Dublin

With book by Dennis Kelly, original songs by Tim Minchin and direction by Matthew Warchus, Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

The Story

Matilda the Musical follows the story of an ordinary girl with extraordinary powers. Matilda Wormwood’s parents think she is nothing but a nuisance where as she thinks they care more about the TV than her. When they are not slouched in front of the telly, she is ignored by her mother in favour of ballroom dancing and by her father for dodgy business deals. At school Matilda life isn’t much better with the monstrous Miss Trunchbull terrifying the students and teachers, that is until one day Matilda discovers her powers and decides the grown-ups need to be taught a lesson.

History of Matilda

Inspired by the incomparable Roald Dahl’s book, Matilda The Musical premiered at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in November 2010, before transferring to London’s West End in October 2011, where it opened to rave reviews. Now in its sixth year in London’s West End, Matilda The Musical is the longest running production at the Cambridge Theatre where it continues to play to packed houses. The winner of 85 international awards, including 16 for Best Musical, Matilda swept the board at the 2012 Olivier Awards, with a record-breaking seven awards! Matilda has also opened on Broadway where it has proved to be one of New York’s most popular shows and was honoured with Time Magazine’s Show of the Year award.
