Matilda the Musical is set to return to the West End’s Cambridge Theatre from the 16th September.
A brand new video has been released of the four young performers who will share the title role in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Matilda The Musical. The video sees Imogen Cole, Alyssa D’Souza, Alex Munden and Zoe Simon getting to grips with their gymnastic ribbon skills under the watchful eye of Elliot Harper (Miss Trunchbull).
