Matilda The Musical waltzes into Australia
The New South Wales Premier announced today that our musical, Matilda, will make its debut down under at Sydney's Lyric Theatre in August 2015.
Gregory Doran, RSC Artistic Director, and Catherine Mallyon, RSC Executive Director, said: 'We are thrilled that we are able to waltz the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Matilda The Musical to Australia in 2015, following the production's success when we premiered it in Stratford-upon-Avon, and since then, in London's West End and on Broadway.
'We have already had a very warm welcome from our producing partner, Louise Withers, the New South Wales and Victoria governments and all the theatres we have been talking to so far.'
'It will be the first time the Company has been in Australia since our touring production of Rape of Lucrece played at the Sydney Festival and in Melbourne last year - and we are very excited to be coming back.'
Casting is expected to begin late 2014 with ticketing information to be announced at a later date.
