Did you miss Matilda the Musical when it graced the stage in Dubai in 2023? You’re in luck because the award-winning musical is returning to the UAE, this time to Abu Dhabi in the summer of 2024.

The captivating musical is set to run for four days at Etihad Arena from June 20 to 23, 2024. Tickets can be purchased on for a starting price of Dhs150 for a show over the weekday and Dhs200 over the weekends.

So, what’s Matilda The Musical about?


The musical is inspired by the beloved book Matilda written by the world-famous British author, Roald Dahl.

The story follows a little girl called Matilda who is anything but ordinary. Armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, she dares to take a stand and change her destiny.

Directed by Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus, the script is written by Dennis Kelly, a British playwright with over 20 plays to date to his name. For the dance numbers, you will be bobbing your heads and tapping your feet to music and original songs written by Tim Minchin and choreographed by Tony Award winner Peter Darling.

Nicolas Renna, Chief Executive Officer at Proactiv Entertainment, expressed his excitement, stating “We are absolutely thrilled to bring this vibrant and highly inspiring musical to Abu Dhabi.
