Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tickets – A magically sweet journey
You may have read the book. You might have seen one or both of the movie adaptations, the first starring Gene Wilder and the second Johnny Depp. Or you may be completely new to the story. Either way, Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book is the perfect candidate for a winning stage musical and it has exploded into to life, at last, for West End theatregoers to enjoy in spring 2013.
What’s the storyline? Willy Wonka owns the most fantastic chocolate factory in the world. When he decides to invite five children to visit his magical factory he hides five golden tickets inside the wrapping of five bars of his famous chocolate. The tale follows Charlie Bucket, a good boy from a poor family, whose beloved Grandpa Joe helps him realise his dreams. When Charlie manages to secure the last golden ticket, the pair are transported into the adventure of a lifetime…
Charlie’s fantastic golden ticket sends him on a spectacular adventure into Willy Wonka’s strange, eccentric and often scary world, where nasty children receive punishments that perfectly suit their crimes. Expect an ending so poignant you’ll find yourself in tears. Even if you already know the story back to front, as many of us do, you’ll fall in love with it all over again!
A classic children’s favourite with a dark adult theme running through it, this is a wonderful production with stagecraft, music, costumes, choreography, songs and lyrics by some of the best talent in the business. Directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes, it is already causing a stir of excited anticipation across London’s West End.
It’s colourful and bright, a vibrant feats for the senses, not to be missed. Book your Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tickets through us, do it in good time and secure your seats for a spectacular adventure into fantasy land.
