A review about Matilda the musical

The story line

There is a girl called Matilda and her parents neglect her and she found out that anything she had to do she had to do herself, so the next day she goes to the nearest library and reads all the children's books then moves on to the adults books. Then she goes the school and through a series of events she manages to get rid of Miss Trunchbull the mean head teacher and then gets to live with Miss Honey a really nice teacher.

Movie to musical

The musical is a lot better than the play because it has a lot of humour in and additional characters such as Russian Mafia who are very sinister and creepy.

Main Characters

Mr wormwood played by James Clyde
Matilda played by Christina Fray
Mrs Wormwood played by Kay Murphy
Miss Trunchbull played by Alex Gaumond
Miss Honey played by Haley Flaherty

My thoughts
I liked the musical very much and I would recommend it to anyone.It is hilarious from start to finish you'll be laughing your head off by the time Miss Trunchbull gets out some lazers. Well I won't spoil it anymore in case you want to go and see it. Very good from start to finish and well worth a visit.

Favourite part :-
at the end when Miss Trunchbull goes across the stage on a scooter and shouts MAGGOTS!!
When Mr Wormwood asked the nurse when Matilda was first born, " Where's his thingy, you can't have a boy without a thingy."
I was cracking up.
You must go!

8.5 out of 10
because it missed out a lot of scenes from the book.

  1. Sometimes you have to cut things out of the book to make it fit (or, you end up with the "Hobbit" and one book becoming three massive films!) - which scenes in the book do you think they should have kept?
