Pictures of the rehearsals were released this morning:

The touring shows' songs have been written by British-Australian comedian, actor, musician and director Tim Minchin.

Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.
