Australia’s leading theatre producer John Frost and Her Majesty’s Theatre owner Mike Walsh today announced an exciting new initiative, Kid’s Week at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from 4-8 December 2019. During this week, every child 15 years and under will receive a free ticket to the show when accompanied by a full paying adult. Plus, as a special behind the scenes bonus, children will get to experience the fun, the people and the magic behind the show. This is a first for the Australian theatre industry.

The idea of Kid’s Week at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is to encourage children who haven’t yet experienced world class theatre productions to do so, by providing the free ticket for a child under 15 when accompanied by an adult, and a supporting ‘behind the scenes’ experience. At the beginning of each performance during Kid’s Week, a host will take to the stage before the performance and introduce the audience to Her Majesty’s Theatre, the people of the theatre (Stage Manager, Wardrobe, Lighting, Sound, Orchestra etc) and a special on-stage scene starring competition winners from the audience.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the ideal show to introduce children to the magic of theatre,” said John Frost. “It is such a wonderful story for generations to share, and brought to life on stage in such a magical way. Theatre is pure imagination, and we’re sure that once kids fall in love with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, they will come back to see many more shows in the future.”
