Matilda - The Musical Season


Due to the change to Covid Alert Level RED, and the ongoing spread of the virus, we have been forced to postpone the April 2022 season of Matilda - The Musical to September of 2022.

Whilst disappointed, we are feeling grateful that we have been able to secure our wonderful venue, the Isaac Theatre Royal for a season later this year.

Ticketek have contacted all patrons and notified them of the change in season and the performance to which they have been reallocated to.

Please note that we are aware that many patrons may have selected a specific performance to attend in order to see a particular cast member, especially those in the children’s cast.

With this in mind, we have endeavoured to keep the same performers in the corresponding performance in the new season (see the schedule on this page).

For those for whom the new dates are not convenient, there will be the opportunity to change to a different performance (subject to availability) or receive a refund. Refund requests must be made by May 19th, 2022.

For April season ticket holders, your current tickets are valid for the reallocated September season performance. You do not need to update your tickets.

If you have not heard from Ticketek or have an enquiry, please contact them at with your booking reference numbers.

We sincerely thank all our patrons for their positivity, patience and support. We guarantee that that Matilda will be worth the wait!


About Matilda - The Musical

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.

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life.

With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey.

Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality.

Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs and an unforgettable star turn for a young actress, Matilda is a joyous girl power romp.

Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Featuring an all local cast, including some of New Zealand’s most talented child performers, Matilda will be THE show to see in Christchurch 2022!
