Behind the scenes at Matilda the Musical

To say that the stage adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Matilda has been well received is something of an understatement – after making its debut in 2011, the musical scooped a record-breaking seven gongs at 2012’s Olivier Awards. This has much to do with the Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin’s script and score, as well as some innovative stage design and props. But, as with Dahl’s original novel, ‘Matilda the Musical’ has proved a hit thanks to its wonderful characters – from child genius Matilda herself, to the villainous Miss Trunchbull. Here the boorish Mrs Wormwood – aka the lovely actress Kay Murphy – takes us on a backstage tour through the magical world of 'Matilda'. We see her character's extortionate, lurid blonde wig and she explains a little of what goes on behind the scenes at the West End's most mischievous show.
