    MATILDA THE MUSICAL DELAYED BY A WEEK

    The eagerly awaited opening of The Royal Shakespeare Company's West End Transfer of Matilda has been delayed due to problems with finishing the shows set on time. 

    This means the MATILDA's first preview will take place a week later on October 25th and the opening night pushed back to November 24th.

     
    Matilda is based on Roald Dahl's much loved story about a gifted girl with an extraordinary imagination and the book is enjoyed by children and adults alike. 
    According to a statement from the company, “structural work and extensive installation required for the show has taken longer than planned” meaning that it has had to delay the cast from rehearsing in the Cambridge Theatre, where the show is playing.
     
    Executive Producer on Matilda, Andre Ptaszynski, said: “Every musical theatre production of this scale goes through similar challenges during this pre-opening period, but Matilda has a cast made up of three different teams of young actors and four young actresses in the title role. 
     
    “This means that, unlike other shows, we cannot extend everyone’s working hours, take shortcuts and reduce the number of dress rehearsals to meet the date of the first preview. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused to people who had booked for these early performances and we are working hard to ensure that the re-booking or refunding process is as quick and as easy as possible.”
