The winner of over 75 international awards, including 15 for Best Musical, will premiere at The Civic in Auckland this August.

Matilda The Musical is coming to Auckland, New Zealand this August for a limited season. Full dates and ticketing information will be announced soon – but the waitlist is now open!

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s beloved book, Matilda The Musical tells the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny. The show, which was first staged on the Courtyard Theatre (2010) in Stratford-upon-Avon, is currently playing at the Crown Theatre in Perth, and arrives in Adelaide at the Festival Theatre in late May. We are delighted that the show will also be staged at The Civic as part of the Auckland Season.

Director of Auckland Live Robbie Macrae said “We are excited to welcome Matilda The Musical, featuring one of the world’s best-loved little geniuses to The Civic for its exclusive New Zealand season. This multi-award winning international musical, which has already toured three continents, will be an extraordinary experience made even more special by being performed at The Civic - Auckland’s much-loved landmark and New Zealand’s home of international musicals.”
