Matilda The Musical
21 February - 17 March
Matilda The Musical will be making its debut in Singapore from February at Marina Bay Sands. Inspired by the beloved book by famous author Roald Dahl, the award-winning musical has been shown on London’s West End and Broadway and received five-star reviews. The Singapore season marks the first time the hit musical has ventured to Asia, having toured Australia and New Zealand from 2015 to 2017.
The musical tells the story of Matilda, a precocious five-year-old girl who loves reading and learning, but is suppressed by her TV-obsessed parents who pay her little attention. As she grows up, she begins to resist the challenges and obstacles presented to her. Seeking solace in the library in a world of her imagination and creation, Matilda forms strong bonds with adults such as Librarian Mrs Phelps and her class teacher Miss Honey. Together they give her the confidence to embrace her special gift and individuality which is needed to reclaim her life.
