Admission Ticket Included
Great theater to visit! Lots of snacks, great seats, and amazing production! One of the best shows I’ve seen for not originally being a musical!

Absolutely fantastic show. The actors were excellent, choreography was great and songs were fab especially “when I grow up” and “revolting children”.
Highly recommend going to watch this musical
A really great show
The show is absolutely fantastic. All the performers delivered great performances, and this is even more impressive, when you consider the young age profile of the performers.
We had seats quite near the front of the theatre.
Actors were incredible. Such a thrill to watch and experience. Seating was good choice up close and enjoyed the refreshments which had plenty to choose from.
Fantastic but parts missing (SPOILERS)
Firstly I will start by saying I thoroughly enjoyed it and would see it again. The dancing was incredible from the young children
The trunchbull absolutely brilliant. The stage and props were brilliant, I loved the dancing and stunts etc I was front row so I can't comment on the sound quality but 2 big things were missing for me please DON'T read any further if you don't want spoilers.
Amanda thripp being spun by pig tails - fantastic scene.
Bruce bog trotter eating cake - although he was a slim child lol
The newt scene.
No reference to matildas red ribbon. This to me is a huge part of her identity.
No scenes at trunchbulls house
The part when her dad asks Michael for the answer on his paper and she gives the answer
No blowing up the TV. I felt this could have been done very simply
NO CHOKEY. It was talked about and the children were supposedly put in it but it was a few laser beam lights really quite random.
And most importantly NO magic. There was 2 scenes of a cup that wobbled and fell over. And the last scene of when magnus writes on the black board (as someone that's watched the movie about 50 times that scene annoyed me as they wrote it wrong)
I feel that lavender could have easily floated up in the air (especially after Amanda thripp) the TV could have blown up some stuff could have moved about..
Michael was completely removed as a character pretty much. He was there but no lines with matilda.
The adaptations I enjoyed
I liked the new Mrs Phelps
I enjoyed the physical education part
I enjoyed British Harry and zinnia wormwood although they had 3 members of their marriage haha
I loved miss trunchbull being played by a man
