The Royal Shakespeare Company plans to bring its production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical to New York in early 2013.

Auditions for adult casting will begin in March. Further production information will be announced in the near future.

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.

Roald Dahl’s story about a girl with extraordinary powers was published in 1988.

Matilda The Musical is written by playwright Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by the Australian comedian, musician and composer Tim Minchin. Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus directs.

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.
