Cheap Matilda the Musical tickets at the Cambridge Theatre
Following its transfer to the Cambridge Theatre in October 2011 after a sensational season at the Courtyard Theatre, the joyous theatrical blow-out known as Matilda the Musical has become a super-hot West End ticket.
Based on Roald Dahl's much-loved story and brought explosively to life by Dennis Kelly and award-winning musician and comedian Tim Minchin, the show wiped the floor at the 2012 Olivier Awards.
It picked up all the gongs that really count, including Best New Musical, Best Actor in a Musical, Best Director and Best Actress in a Musical. The latter award was shared between the four incredible young actresses who shared the title role.
Did we mention its Evening Standard and Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical too? Why, you ask, has Matilda picked up all these gilded plaudits? Because it really is that good, that’s why. Brilliant fun for both adults and children, its songs and a story are the perfect panacea for gloomy times when what we really need is a little innocence and a whole lot of magic.
Suitable for ages 6+
Roald Dahl has long been regarded as perhaps the master of children’s fiction with a dark, sophisticated twist. No surprise then that children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by this adaptation of his story about a special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
Matilda’s parents think she’s a nuisance and she thinks, quite rightly, that they’re only interested in watching telly. Life isn’t much better at school, where monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies both students and teachers indiscriminately. Then one day Matilda discovers she has a very special power and decides it's time the grown-ups were taught a lesson. Be warned: the children are revolting.

Cambridge Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Cambridge Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The Cambridge Theatre is situated on Earlham Street in the West End of London, close to Leicester Square tube station. Built in 1930, this 1249 seat venue has witnessed performances by a host of legendary stars including Audrey Hepburn and Ingrid Bergman.
The first production at the Cambridge Theatre was Charlot’s Masquerade by Ronald Jeans, which took place on September 4 1930. Among the countless memorable shows to have graced this spacious West End theatre’s stage since then are Elizabeth of England, A Night in Venice, Half a Sixpence and A Month in the Country.
Like any long-serving institution, the theatre’s fortunes have varied over the years. The Cambridge was refurbished in 1950, with chandeliers added and the original gold and silver decor painted over in red.
But the theatre fell out of favour in the late ’60s and was converted into a cinema for a year in 1967. In 1984 the Cambridge underwent major restructuring and reopened as a magic theatre called The Magic Castle. Funding issues led to its closure after just one year in this incarnation.
In 1986 the property was purchased by Stoll Moss Theatres and they once again refurbished the theatre, this time in order to restore the original furnishings of the interior.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Cambridge Theatre make it the perfect place to see grand West End musicals. Recent successes include Grease, Jerry Springer the Musical, Something Wicked This Way Comes, Dancing in the Street, Chicago and Matilda the Musical.
Whatever you decide to see at the Cambridge Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
