Minchin and his munchkin de­light

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

TIM Minchin de­lighted VIPs at a spe­cial event launch­ing Matilda the Mu­si­cal to Perth at the Crown Metropol Inifin­ity Suite on Thurs­day.

Minchin, who ear­lier that day treated his daugh­ter Vi­o­let to birth­day cel­e­bra­tions, said Novem­ber 24 was al­ways a busy day for the fam­ily.

“Vi­o­let is 10 to­day and I’ve been away for quite a few of her birth­days,” he said.

“So when I told her I’d booked an­other tour, Vi­o­let’s like ‘Se­ri­ously?’ so I said ‘Let’s go to­gether’. It’s a bit weird for her be­cause she’s away from her mum and her brother. She’s a beau­ti­ful girl and an in­ter­est­ing lit­tle monkey. I’m so glad we did it and don’t think we’ll ever for­get this.”

Minchin said the pair toured five cities in two weeks and en­joyed her birth­day with break­fast at the beach with her four grand­par­ents, cake and cousin.
