Sing-a-Long-a Matilda at Palace Theatre, Manchester 2 March 2024 Tickets from £18.25 — Book now

This March embark on a mischievous journey with your loved ones at the special sing-a-long Matilda the Musical at the Manchester Opera House, a heartwarming film based on Roald Dahl’s popular novel. This Tony and Olivier Award-winning cinematic production promises a delightful experience for families, filled with music and magic.

Matilda, the extraordinary girl with a sharp mind and vivid imagination, invites families to join her for an interactive production, packed with miracles and mayhem to captivate children and their grownups too.

A friendly host will guide you through this cinematic adventure. Learn some delightful dance moves, discover the wonders within your free props bags, and join in the action by booing at the mean villains (we’re looking at you, Miss Trunchbull) and cheering for Matilda, Miss Honey, and their friends.

In this unique cinematic experience, YOU, the audience, take centre stage! The first rule of sing-a-long is simple – THERE ARE NO RULES! And fancy-dress for the whole family is encouraged… Yes, Dad, dig out that Trunchbull costume – we know you want to!

Families really are in for a treat as they become the stars of the show, creating memories that will last a lifetime. This singalong screening is a perfect opportunity for parents, grandparents, and children to come together, delight in Matilda’s inspiring, funny, and sometimes scary, sometimes sad story, and perhaps be a little bit naughty in the process. Expect an accessible and enjoyable experience for families of all ages.

Please note that this is a screening of the film, not a live stage show.
