Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical

Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical
The story of an extraordinary girl who dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. 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, catchy songs and an unforgettable star turn for a young actress, Matilda 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.

Release Date

Hello,

 

Just checking to see if and when any release date can at least be expected for rights to be released or if there is a wait list my organization can get on to receive rights once they are released? Any idea of a month or year at least? Can you tell I'm excited for this!?

 

Thanks,

Lauren

It's my understanding you have received the rights to license this show. Theatrical licensor Music Theatre International (MTI) has secured licensing rights to the worldwide smash hit, Matilda the Musical, based on Roald Dahl's novel Matilda. When ?
When will it be licensed? November 2016 is when you received the rights.

Rights for a school musical
Hello, I was wondering if there´s any posibility of buying the musical rights of Matilda for a non profit musical proyect, made by the Educational Corporation of Las Condes, Santiago, Chile. We are very interested in the musical, and we know the rights are not available, but maybe you can do an exception, as we work with kids and this proyect have no profits at all. Thanks and we are waiting for an answer. We need to close this issue now. Regards
