Matilda The Musical's Tim Minchin and Dennis Kelly introduce Craige Els, who plays Miss Trunchbull from September 2014

The West End adaptation of Roald Dahl's much-loved Matilda The Musical has been seen by almost 1.5 million people since it transferred to the West End's Cambridge Theatre in October 2011. And this September, the Royal Shakespeare Company's award-winning production welcomes some new cast members to its Cambridge Theatre home...

The show's newest Miss Trunchbull Craige Els - introduced in the video below by writers Tim Minchin (music and lyrics) and Dennis Kelly (book) - will be joined by two new Matildas, Violet Tucker and Matilda Shapland, who will alternate with Tasha Chapple and Lottie Sicilia in the title role.

Here are Tim and Dennis to introduce Craige:

Craige Els, Violet Tucker and Matilda Shapland join the company from September 2014. They join a cast that also includes James Clyde (Mr Wormwood), Haley Flaherty (Miss Honey) and Kay Murphy (Mrs Wormwood).

Matilda The Musical is now playing to audiences in London's West End and on Broadway, with an Australian production planned for 2015.
