Academy Award winner Sam Mendes directs this West End musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s wonderfully warped tale, now showing at Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

Charlie and his family are poor, dirt poor, so when Charlie wins one of only five golden tickets granting him entry into Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and all the chocolate he can eat it’s a dream come true. But beyond the gates of the factory the five competition winners get more than they bargained for.

The technical challenges of bringing Wonka’s Chocolate Factory to life have been the topic of much discussion in theatre-land and the effort and ingenuity that has gone into the extraordinary effects in this darkly comic musical is clear to see. Through incredible stagecraft each of the factory’s rooms boasts its own bizarre surprises and an army of squirrels, a flying glass box and a crowd of Oompa-Loompas awaits Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ticket holders.

With a book by David Greig, lyrics by Grammy Award winners Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman and music by Marc Shaiman, Sam Mendes has created a thrilling extravaganza that still manages to capture the morality at the heart of Roald Dahl’s story. 


2 hours and 30 minutes including one interval.
