Matilda the Musical Jr

10th - 18th June 2022

Based on the 1988 children's novel of the same name by Roald Dahl, Matilda the Musical was adapted by Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin and directed for the stage by Matthew Warchus.


The musical's narrative centres on Matilda, a precocious 5-year-old girl with the gift of telekinesis, who loves reading, overcomes obstacles caused by her family and school, and helps her teacher to reclaim her life.

CODS is delighted to have the opportunity to perform the Jr version of this wonderful musical at our very own Playhouse Theatre in Cheltenham.
