Unfortunately professional and amateur performance rights of Matilda The Musical are not yet released but the creators of the smash-hit West End and Broadway show are hoping to create a junior version to be released during 2014, so you can perform it for your school friends.
If you just can’t wait that long, it is possible for your school to license up to four songs and you can use extracts from Roald Dahl’s wonderful book, but please note it is essential that permission is obtained prior to any performances taking place. For permission requests, please email: email@example.com with details of the songs you would like to perform and if you would like to use any of Roald Dahl’s words from the story.
Please note: NO PROFESSIONAL STAGE OR OTHER AMATEUR RIGHTS ARE AVAILABLE AND NO COPYING OF THE WEST END OR BROADWAY STAGING, DESIGNS, CHOREOGRAPHY OR GRAPHIC DESIGNS IS ALLOWED.
Tim Minchin’s Matilda The Musical songbook is available at the RSC shop in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Cambridge Theatre in London’s West End, at Musicroom stores around the UK and from all good music shops. If you’re not in the UK, the book is available online from www.rsc.org.uk/shop and www.musicroom.com who both ship internationally.
