When Charlie Bucket finds one of the five golden tickets to the Wonka Chocolate Factory, he and the other winners can’t wait to feast on the sweets of their dreams. But beyond the gates, they discover more than just remarkable edible delights. As they embark on an extraordinary journey through Willy Wonka’s marvellous mind, they soon learn that nobody leaves the same way that they arrived…

The weird and wonderful world of Roald Dahl's Charlie and The Chocolate Factory – The Musical will dazzle your senses when it plays at Sunderland Empire from Wed 2 Aug - Sun 13 Aug 2023 as part of its first ever UK & Ireland Tour.
