My Grandaughter Lucie, who is in a wheelchair, and her brother, along with myself ) and my husband, came to the matinee on wed. August 1st, seats row N.

Lucie is very noise sensitive and combinined with being in discomfort herself, got upset with the shouting during the first 10 minutes and so we came out into the stalls corridor to listen from there. It was her birthday treat and I was very sad for her as she loves musical theatre above all, and attends a drama club after school.

I cannot speak highly enough of all the staff and actors, all of whom made it such a special afternoon with their friendliness and

Kindness to us both. I can honestly say she had a better time than if she had seen the show.

Can you please pass on our thanks to everyone and they made a small girl very happy. It was truly special.

Ps mr wormwood is her new best friend,

The musical was amazing

I would like to send my enormous congratulations to the cast of Matilda in last Saturday's evening performance (9th September 2017). The whole show from start to finish was pure magic. I've not left a theatre in recent memory feeling so truly emotional & touched by such a wonderful spectacle. Every single member of the cast were fantastic. My children are 8 & 6 and haven't stopped listening to the soundtrack ever since. Memories they (& we) will cherish forever. Thank you all so much.

Een ervaring om nooit te vergeten, de kinderen die samen dansen, en de lol die ze in de musical hebben is gewoon heel leuk om te zien! En het verhaal is gewoon super, en de muziek maakt het gewoon helemaal af! ZEKER EEN AANRADER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AMAZING!!!

Outstanding!Enjoyed from start to finish as a well loved story was brought to life on a well 'engineered' stage. Memorable performances by all actors. Pure theatre and a fabulous treat for the audience.

Had dinner with the 'young', talented cast prior to show - didn't realise this until they left and their hoodies gave the show away!

Brilliant fun!

I went to see matilda and it was extreamly entertaining and i enjoyed it alot. Personally i think it is suitable for any ages. I especially liked the actor who was playing the roll of Matilda and i think she is very talented!

Not only was the show brilliant , but the staff were exceedingly kind to me as an oldie with a stick trying to negotiate the upper circle. Thanks to all.
