What’s on in the West End? The West End is a vibrant part of central London with crowded shops and restaurants. It has also got about forty different theatres – that’s why people often call it Theatreland. Some fantastic musicals are playing there right now, including Matilda The Musical.
Matilda The Musical is based on the children’s novel Matilda by Roald Dahl. The main character is Matilda Wormwood, an extraordinary young girl, who loves reading. Mr and Mrs Wormwood aren’t kind to her because they think books are bad. School life is also difficult with a scary head teacher, Miss Trunchbull. Matilda’s dream is to change the situation and, in the end, that’s what she does.
For publicity, there’s a short video of Matilda The Musical on YouTube. You can see the characters performing on stage in the theatre. They aren’t just singing; they’re acting, dancing and doing acrobatics, too. The production company are always looking for new children to be Matilda and her classmates. To be Matilda, girls need to be between 8 and 12 years old, and shorter than 129.5 cm. That’s small!
