Going international with Matilda the Musical

POSTED ON 03/01/2019

We are very proud to have been chosen by GWB Entertainment to supply lighting equipment for the international tour of Matilda the Musical.

Matilda is the Roald Dahl inspired award-winning musical from the Royal Shakespeare Company. Written by Dennis Kelly, with an original score by the legendary Tim Minchin, it tells the story of an extraordinary little girl who dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

Working with the original creative team for Matilda, including highly acclaimed Lighting Designer Hugh Vanstone, Associate Lighting Designer & Programmer Chris Hirst and Production Technician Fraser Hall, we have provided a range of lighting equipment from our huge inventory of hire stock.

Equipment supplied includes:

• Martin Mac Encore Performance CLD
• Martin Mac Encore Wash CLD
• GLP Impression X4 Wash RGBW
• Martin Mac Aura XB
• MA Lighting MA2 Control System

Having opened in South Africa, the International Tour will spend the next year in Asia Pacific territories to include Singapore and China.

Mark Burnett, Business Development Manager at Hawthorn said: “Matilda the Musical is a fantastic show and it’s an honour to be part of the incredible team taking it an international audience. It’s always exciting to supply equipment to meet the creative vision of a lighting designer of Hugh’s standing and to see how his stunning designs help to bring a story like Matilda to life onstage.”
