Last week we kicked off our ‘Behind the Magic’ Facebook Live series for Matilda the Musical. We went backstage with Stage Manager Howard Williamson who showed us around backstage and talked us through what happens just an hour before the curtain goes up.

Seen by over 7.7 million people, the show has played 60+ cities across the UK, North America, Australia and New Zealand but this is its first ever UK tour. Howard talked to us about how the huge production moves and settles into every venue and all the interesting things that happen behind the scenes.
