The revolting musical hit, 'Matilda JR' based upon Roald Dahl's book, comes to Surbiton this Summer, packed with the incredible musical score by Tim Minchin and imaginative book by Dennis Kelly, this is a show is utterly REVOLTING!

Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence... and special powers! She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

'Matilda JR' is being performed as part of our Ages 7-11 Weekly Theatre Academy classes on a Tuesday and Saturday. You can find out how to join the cast by clicking here.
