Congratulations to Millie in Year 8, who won First Prize in our Review Competition for Matilda the Musical. Millie wins a “REVOLTING” Matilda the Musical t-shirt! Here is Millie’s fantastic review of our incredible visit:
On Wednesday 26th September 50 pupils from Year 8 to Year 10 went to watch Matilda the Musical at the Manchester Palace Theatre. It was AMAZING! It was the best musical I have ever seen. It was so good I was speechless. My favourite bit was when Bruce Bogtrotter was caught by the terrifying Miss Trunchbull stealing a slice of cake. As a punishment Bruce had to eat the most enormous, sticky and sickly looking chocolate cake you’ve ever seen. It was magical how the huge cake disappeared as though Bruce had eaten it. It was really funny.
The dancing and singing was amazing and all the children who performed knew all their lines and dance moves so professionally. Matilda even spoke in Russian! We also got filmed on the way in by the BBC and our interviews were shown on BBC 1 Breakfast the next morning.
I would definitely recommend Matilda the Musical to everyone, it is a 5 STAR SHOW and I could watch it all over again. I wish I could have been in it!
Thank you Mrs Cummins, Mrs Jones & Miss Clarkson for taking us – it was the best!
