Matilda The Musical premiered at The Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, home of the RSC, in November 2010. The production transferred to London’s West End on Oct. 25, 2011, where the show continues to play to sold-out houses.

The production is designed by Rob Howell, with choreography by Peter Darling, orchestrations, additional music and musical supervision by Christopher Nightingale, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound by Simon Baker and special effects and illusions by Paul Kieve.
Matilda The Musical is produced in the West End by the Royal Shakespeare Company with André Ptaszynski as executive producer.
