Charlie and the Chocolate Factory | Shedley Theatre | 27-29 Oct 2022

NOW Productions presents ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ at the Shedley Theatre.

The world-famous Willy Wonka is opening the gates to his mysterious factory…but only to a lucky few. Young Charlie Bucket and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a life-changing journey through Wonka’s world of pure imagination including chocolate waterfalls, nutty squirrels and the great glass elevator, all to be revealed by Wonka’s army of curious Oompa-Loompas.

Based on the famous novel by Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory features an original score composed by Marc Shaiman with lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray) and a book by David Greig. The score also pays homage to the Leslie Bricusse/Anthony Newley score from the 1971 film with songs from the motion picture including ‘Candy Man,’ ‘I’ve Got a Golden Ticket,’ ‘Oompa Loompa Song,’ and ‘Pure Imagination.’

Featuring a live orchestra from the Playford City Bands, this production is set to have you roaring with laughter and cheering on the Oompa Loompas!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is your golden ticket to a fantastic family theatre experience.
