Charlie And The Chocolate Factory - The Musical
Charlie And The Chocolate Factory - The Musical is based on the classic Charlie and the Chocolate Story written by Roald Dahl in 1964 which has gone on to inspire dozens of copycat films and the inspiration for the 1971 musical classic starring Gene Wilder.
The story follows a young boy from a deprived background as he wins an exclusive ‘golden ticket’ to tour the factory of wacky chocolate maker Willy Wonka. Entering into this crazy world, young Charlie and four extremely spoilt children are shown the workings of the factory and get a behind the scenes look at a world of chocolate rivers, Oompa Loompas and angry squirrels.
Charlie And The Chocolate Factory - The Musical has an abundance of famous songs from the original film version, with everyone’s favourites: ‘I’ve Got a Golden Ticket’, ‘The Candyman Can’, ‘Pure Imagination’.
The new musical has a stellar production team behind it; Hot-shot producer Sam Mendes and multi-award winning choreographer Peter Darling and award winning set designer Mark Thompson.
