Why go and see it?

The smash-hit musical based on Roald Dahl’s classic story

Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - The Musical; the devilishly delicious tale of young golden ticket winner Charlie Bucket and the mysterious confectionary wizard Willy Wonka (Gareth Snook), will embark on its first ever UK & Ireland Tour. This dazzling new production of the successful West End and Broadway musical will take you to a world of pure imagination.

Production shot

Gareth Snook’s many West End theatre credits include Monsieur André in The Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, Sunset Boulevard, Made in Dagenham, Aspects of Love, My Fair Lady, Assassins and Company.

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

Featuring memorable songs from the iconic 1970s film as well as a host of new numbers, this sensational musical is choc-full of fantastical treats to dazzle your senses.

Don’t miss out, grab your GOLDEN Ticket now!

Based on the novel by Roald Dahl and the Warner Bros. film.
