Matilda The Musical – Now booking until 21 October 2012

Following a sensational sell-out season at The Courtyard Theatre, the RSC’s production of MATILDA THE MUSICAL has extended its booking period to 21 Oct 2012 at the Cambridge Theatre, London.

Roald Dahl’s much-loved story bursts into life on stage in this brand new musical version by Dennis Kelly  and award-winning musician and comedian Tim Minchin. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Her parents think she is a nuisance and she thinks, quite rightly, they are only interested in watching telly. Life is not much better at school, where the monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies both students and teachers ALIKE. Then one day Matilda discovers she has a very special power and decides it’s time the grown-ups were taught a lesson. Be warned, the children are revolting…

Tickets on Sale for As You Like It – Stratford Upon Avon

Tickets are on sale for As You Like It – Stratford Upon Avon directed by Michael Boyd.

When two young people fall in love they are unable to act on their impulse. Uncertain of their standing in court and fearing for their lives, Rosalind and Orlando are forced into exile in the Forest of Arden only to become entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity.

One of Shakespeare’s great comedies, As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance, confusing gender roles, nature and politics in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.

The role of Rosalind will be played by Katy Stephens, who recently won the What’s On Stage Theatregoers’ Choice Best Actress Award for her performances as Joan of Arc and Margaret of Anjou as part of the Histories Ensemble.

Jonjo O’Neill also returns to the Company to play Orlando following his roles in the acclaimed 2005 Gunpowder Season. Joining them to play Celia is Mariah Gale, who recently took the roles of Ophelia in Hamlet and the Princess of France in Love’s Labour’s Lost as part of the Summer 2008 season.

RSC Artistic Director Michael Boyd directs the new RSC Ensemble in As You Like It following the critically acclaimed 2006 – 2008 Histories Cycle.

As You Like It plays in repertoire at The Courtyard Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon from 18 April – 3 October 2009.

Running time
The running time for As You Like It is 3 hours and 5 minutes including an interval of 20 minutes.
