YAYS: - The children. The child actors and actresses in this production were an absolute joy to watch - I could have gone through the entire play just watching the brilliant expressions on their faces as they navigated complicated dialogue, dance routines and songs. I think back to my school plays and it really does boggle my mind what these... More

Amazing production, great cast, fantastic music, brilliant sets. This was one of the best shows I have seen, really first rate, so much energy has a real buzz about it. Highly recommended.

We went to see the show last night, it was excellent the actors/actresses were amazing. But we had front row tickets and this literally means you are sitting on the stage, I was disappointed with the tickets as it was too close and I like to be close to the stage, I wish it had been made clearer when booking.

We watched the show last night, and have to say the actors were excellent. The whole performance was brilliant, and the storyline was excellent. The child actors were fantastic! one show we would return to watch again!

My husband and I took my 10 year old daughter for a birthday treat. We had heard very good things so expected it to be quite good but neither of us expected it to be soooo good. We drifted out after magical evening. The performance was brilliant. Couldn't fault a thing? A must see.

I booked to see Matilda, as my wife expressed a wish to see it. Though it is based on the film, so many different scenes have been added that sometimes it feels like you are watching something a bit different...but it's for the better! Loved the section featuring Mrs Wormwood and her dance partner...suddenly were watching 'Strictly'. The Russian mafia... More

Just spent the evening watching Matilda - positives are : stage scenery is beautiful- and the best bits of the show were the first ten minutes of the second half and the last ten minutes! Negatives: upper circle visibility was terrible many guests were asking to be moved, including me & my friends- tickets did not state restricted view and... More

I'd originally had a problem with Upper Circle visibility, so couldn't see the whole show. Many thanks to the excellent management who arranged an alternative and better seat for me. There's so much to notice - innovative set and scene change, quirky and interesting music/lyrics, fine comedy moments, emotional tugging at the audience's heart strings (yes, I had tears at... More

This production is a brilliant musical, for all ages. A few sleeping children were seen at the evening show which was understandable as it finishes after 10pm, however, it was full of thrills and energy and the cast of children (and adults) are outrageously talented. I actually shed tears of emotion when it finished. It was overwhelmingly brilliant! I bought... More

This was simply amazing! The children performers were simply amazing! We had great seats in the dress circle and loved the show from start to finish. The set was magical and the show was so gripping the whole way through. A great show for all ages to appreciate and relate to!

Thank Laura-Jane P
