Okay, it may be almost a whole year away, but it’s time to get excited…
Matilda The Musical is coming to Bradford in 2019!
The UK and Ireland tour has been extended to 2019, and will include a trip to Alhambra
Theatre, Bradford from 19 February – 23 March 2019. The Royal Shakespeare Company is touring six more cities and will also include the launch of a specially devised education programme, Change My Story, for schools. It looks like a super little programme, full of partner initiatives, workshops and resources – a great way to introduce kids to the joys of theatre.
Matilda The Musical has picked up 85 international awards, so it’s definitely going to be a good’un. Tim Minchin wrote the music and, though I’m not a huge fan of the songs, there are some nice tunes and Tim Minchin is undoubtedly a great talent. Plus, it’s based on the classic Roald Dahl tale… huge tick!
Though generally thought of as a West End musical, it’s great to see the RSC making it accessible for audiences across the UK. There isn’t a hugely recognized starring cast, but I think Tim Minchin takes the lion’s share of celebrity.
