Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - The Story

Roald Dahl’s dark tale of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. When Charlie wins a golden ticket to the weird and wonderful Wonka Chocolate Factory, it’s the chance of a lifetime to feast on the sweets he’s always dreamed of. But beyond the gates astonishment awaits, as down the sugary corridors and amongst the incredible edible delights, the five lucky winners discover not everything is as sweet as it seems.


Based on the original 1964 book, the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory musical follows the story of a young boy, Charlie Bucket, who wins the chance to explore the infamous Willy Wonker’s chocolate factory. See his journey through despair and ecstasy, sadness and elation, all performed on a spectacular musical scale.

When poor Charlie Bucket learns that mysterious Mr Wonka is set to open his fantastic chocolate factory to five lucky children, he uses the little money he can spare to try to win a cherished Golden Ticket. The big day arrives and each excited kid enters with a guardian, but the bittersweet factory turns out to be far more wonderful and strange than any of them imagined.
