Charlie and the Chocolate Factory theatre breaks are available now that the show has opened. The show is proving popular with audiences and has already extended its run. It looks like great fun for lovers of Roald Dahl whatever their age so don’t think it’s just for kids.
We all enjoy a good rags to riches story with some good musical numbers so why not have a sweet treat?
I’m sure most of us know the story of Charlie Bucket and the golden ticket that gives him entry to the most magical factory in the world. He meets the mysterious and mischievous Willy Wonka and goes on an amazing adventure.
People have flocked to see Matilda and I think Charlie could end up being just as popular. It is directed by Sam Mendez (Skyfall) and the music is by the team who brought us Hairspray.
I managed to find a great video trailer so you can get a suitably chocolatey flavour of the show. Just remember this is not the film, it is much darker and more like the original book. A good thing I think, too much sugar is bad for us!
