    It was an excellent, fun, very energetic evening, the children were so talented. Very impressed with the professional and friendly staff especially the man who was very quick to ask a lady to turn off her phone (despite the fact that there was an announcement to that effect before the show). We thought also there should have been a warning re flashing lights etc. We really enjoyed the whole performance.

    Where to start? It was incredible from start to finish! It was an amazing show with the singing, dancing and acting! The choreography was insane, especially during the School Song, the use of the frame with the lettering was insane! Matilda herself was breathtaking. Could not believe someone so small is so talented! Her voice was beautiful! The casting was amazing and every character was so identifiable but with their own unique takes in the characters! It was absolutely amazing and there are no real words to describe how fabulous it was.

    The Sunday Times

  • Gleefully Nasty, an evening of unadulterated bliss!

    The Guardian

  • Matilda is a fabulous family fizzer. It has strong tunes, witty lyrics and enough ‘eew!’ moments to satisfy the most revolting urchin.
