Matilda moves to the West End

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Matilda the Musical, which played at the Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon for 12 weeks from November last year, will transfer to the Cambridge Theatre this October.

The casting process is currently underway to find four young actresses who will play the role of Matilda; however, it has been confirmed that many adult cast members from the original production will reprise their roles at the Cambridge Theatre. These include Lauren Ward as Miss Honey, Bertie Carvel as Miss Trunchbull, Josie Walker as Mrs Wormwood, Melanie Le Barrie as Mrs Phelps and Paul Kaye as Mr Wormwood.

Matilda the Musical opens at the Cambridge Theatre on 18th October and is currently booking to 12th February 2012. Groups of 10 or more receive a discount.
