ROALD DAHL’s captivating dark story of young Charlie Bucket and the mysterious confectioner Willy Wonka is brought to life in the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory London West End musical, directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes.
When Charlie gets to win a golden ticket to the weird and wonderful Wonka Chocolate Factory, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime to feast on the sweets he’s always dreamed of.
But on the other side of the gates an incredible and amazing sight awaits him, as along the sugary corridors and among the incredible edible delights, the five lucky winners find out that not everything is as sweet as it first seems to be.
Featuring inventive stagemanship, the captivation of the original story that has captivated the world for nearly 50 years is brought to life with music by Marc Shaiman, and lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman (Grammy winners for Hairspray; Smash),.
