Matilda the Musical is finally arriving in Perth….
And you absolutely need to see it….
Last week I was blessed to have the opportunity to see Matilda the Musical in Brisbane. I’ve been driving past the billboards and being teased by the promos at the Crown and on buses for some time now. You can only imagine how excited I was when I got the opportunity to preview this much loved and talked about musical in Brisbane.
It would be safe to say that most of us have heard and read of the genius that is Roald Dahl. So to see one of his legendary novels come together with the lyrical king himself, Tim Minchin, absolutely blew my mind. Combine that with the jaw dropping talent of the cast and crew and you have an experience that is not to be missed.
From the moment the actors burst on to stage with one of my favourite songs of the musical, ‘miracle’, you could not tear your eyes away. They were loud, they were captivating and oh my gosh, so unbelievably talented.
The characters come alive with such animation and gusto that you can’t help but constantly be in awe of the synergy you see between the child and adult performers. From the songs, to the swings, to the maggots getting put in the ‘Chokey’ by former Olympic hammer-throwing champion Miss Trunchbull, there is just so much to love about Matilda.
As I’m not a musical fanatic, but very much a musical lover, I feel that Matilda is a fantastic opportunity to introduce yourself to the world of musicals.
Ladies, this would be the perfect opportunity to get your man out into the musical scene, especially if he has resisted your attempts in the past. I guarantee he will love it just as much as you.
Crown, cocktails, delicious food and a musical?! Did anyone say date night!!
I’m off to the premiere on the 3rd of March and I can’t wait to see it again.
