Roald Dahl’s treasured tale is now Sydney’s
Experience the wonders of Wonka when Roald Dahl’s spectacular new musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory opens its factory doors in Sydney from January 2019.
Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the perfect recipe for a delectable treat: songs from the original film including Pure Imagination, The Candy Man and I’ve Got a Golden Ticket, alongside a toe-tapping and ear-tickling new score from the songwriters of Hairspray.
“Sydney has a huge treat in store next summer, and it’s a magical concoction ready to satisfy any sweet tooth looking for a golden ticket. The world fell in love with Roald Dahl’s bewitching tale when the book was released, then filmgoers adored the 1971 film with Gene Wilder. Now prepare to be enchanted by the story once again on stage. I’m thrilled to bring this captivating production to Australia for the first time.”
