Earlier this month, we had the absolute pleasure of visiting the Ed Mirvish Theatre for some laughs, cries, and songs at Matilda. Matilda the Musical is a multi-award winning musical, inspired by the novel by Roald Dahl, about an extraordinary girl who takes life into her own hands and uses her brilliance and charm to redesign her destiny.
The musical had us engaged from beginning to end with vibrant colours, a very compelling storyline, and the cutest kids we have seen in years! What we loved most were the parallels from the 90s movie starring Mara Wilson as Matilda. Though Matilda’s magic powers were not such a focus in the musical, her eloquence, humour, and fun-loving personality were. Her parents were as hysterical as they were in the movie, and her friends all looked out for one another just like in the book.
We highly recommend seeing this show as soon as possible. Performances are on now through November 27th. A perfect gift for children, parents, grandparents, and a great time for the whole family to enjoy together! You can purchase tickets
