The RSC's Matilda The Musical to hold a special gala performance in aid of BBC Children In Need on Tuesday 4 November 2014

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is to hold a special Gala performance in aid of BBC Children in Need on Tuesday 4 November 2014. The evening will be hosted by BBC Radio 2’s Sir Terry Wogan with a special appearance from the charity’s mascot, Pudsey, and at least 50% of the proceeds from this performance will benefit the BBC Children in Need Appeal.   

Tickets for this special evening are now on sale via SEE tickets. Further information can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/radio2 

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s Executive Director, Catherine Mallyon said: “We are thrilled that our wonderful Matilda The Musical will be playing a part in this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal. Matilda’s story resonates so strongly with the vision of this annual fund raising event, so it is great that we can help support its important work. We look forward to welcoming the BBC and new audiences to what will be a magical Gala performance.”

Gareth Hydes, Head of Editorial at BBC Children in Need, said: “We are delighted to be working with Matilda The Musical on this very special Gala alongside BBC Radio 2. It’s sure to be a great evening whilst raising lots of money to support disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.” 

The multi-award winning Matilda The Musical continues to play to packed houses at the Cambridge Theatre in London and from 15 September will be booking through to 20 December 2015. 

The show has also taken New York by storm, playing at Broadway's Shubert Theatre, and Matilda is set to have its Australian Premiere at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre in August 2015.
