Matilda the Musical is now playing at the Sydney Lyric Theatre and the stage show is already being celebrated for its flawless performances, standing ovations and rave reviews.

The stage musical and adaptation of one of Roald Dahl’s most-loved novels has created huge buzz on the West End and Broadway and now it is Sydney’s turn to see what all the fuss is about.

Written by Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by Australia’s own Tim Minchin, Matilda the Musical is a delightful show that will have kids and adults cheering and giggling.

The enormous early success of Matilda the Musical has been no surprise to anyone who has been involved with the production. Since it was announced that Matilda the Musical was set for a season in Sydney, the interest has been overwhelming.

It seems everyone wants to spend time in Matilda’s world – including people outside New South Wales. As well as single ticket sales, Ticketmaster has facilitated travel packages for Matilda the Musical through our affiliate relationship with Qantas Holidays.

It has never been easier for a theatre goer to book a getaway, which includes flights, a range of accommodation options and a ticket to see Matilda the Musical. The Matilda travel packages are easily accessed via Ticketmaster’s website and provide people outside of New South Wales with a one-stop shop for all their needs.

There are loads of great options including a range of different hotels, which ensures everyone can find a travel package that suits their needs and budget.

As well as travel packages, Ticketmaster and Matilda the Musical are offering great group discounts (20+ attendees) as well as a Share & Save option which allows groups of 10 or more people to receive a special discount rate when they all sign up to see Matilda.

The advantage of Share & Save is that each individual member of the group handles their own transaction; there is no collecting money and chasing people to commit. You simply purchase your ticket and then you have five days to get nine of your mates to sign up at a special discounted rate.

Share & Save is another offering that Ticketmaster has facilitated to assist large groups to efficiently and seamlessly purchase tickets for a show.
