Matildaw

On the 29th June, Stanborough Theatre Club went to see Matilda at the Cambridge Theatre in London’s West End. The award winning musical of Roald Dahl’s much loved book was adapted by Tim Minchin and Dennis Kelly, alongside The Royal Shakespeare Company. It tells the tale of an extraordinary girl who is determined to change her own story, even if it means being a little bit naughty…

The students had plenty of time to wander around the shops and stalls of Covent Garden and have dinner before seeing the evening performance.

“It was a very magical experience that I thoroughly enjoyed and the child actors were very talented. My favourite bit was the swings during ‘when I grow up’. I would definitely watch it again!” Caitlin Maciver (10K)

“It was amazing, very immersive with their use of stage presence and involvement with the audience, having the actors move through the audience and sing in the boxes. Miss Trunchbull dancing with the ribbons was beautiful and the staging and set really brought you into the performance.” Allyna Farrell (10B)
