Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the spectacular new musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane based on Roald Dahl’s much-loved book.
Featuring young Charlie Bucket and the madcap confectioner Willy Wonka, Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Choclate Factory is brought to life in this major new West End musical directed by Oscar-winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall).
Starring Olivier Award winner Alex Jennings as Willy Wonka, this spectacular new musical features stunning sets and costumes by Mark Thompson (Mamma Mia!), breathtaking choreography by Peter Darling (Billy Elliot The Musical; Matilda The Musical) and acclaimed music and lyrics by the team that created Hairspray The Musical – Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
Directed by Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is one of the biggest and most spectacular shows you will ever see.
In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Charlie Bucket wins a golden ticket to visit the weird, wonderful world of the Wonka Chocolate Factory. For five lucky winners it is the sweet-tooth chance-in-a-lifetime to venture into the sugary world of chocolate paradise. But not everything is as sweet as it seems in this darkly comic tale of chocolate gardens and Oompa-Loompas.
The cast includes Alex Jennings as Willy Wonka, Barry James as Grandpa Joe, Josefina Gabrielle as Mrs Teavee, and Richard Dempsey and Kirsty Malpass as Charlie’s parents Mr and Mrs Bucket.
The show also stars Clive Carter (Mr Salt), Jasna Ivir (Mrs Gloop), Paul J Medford (Mr Beauregarde), Billy Boyle (Grandpa George), Roni Page (Grandma Josephine) and Myra Sands (Grandma Georgina) will all continue in the cast, and new ensemble members include Dan Cooke, Divine Cresswell, Connor Dowling, Gemma Fuller, Robert Jones, Matthew Rowland, Rebecca Seale, Gregory Sims, Paulo Teixeira and Laura Tyrer.
