Roald Dahl’s beloved tale is now playing in Brisbane… for the first time EVER!

A delectable musical treat, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory features songs from the original film, including “Pure Imagination”, “The Candy Man” and “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket”, alongside a brand new, toe-tapping and ear-tickling score.

Willy Wonka is opening his marvellous and mysterious chocolate factory to a lucky few. That includes Charlie Bucket, whose bland life is about to sweeten with colour and confection beyond his wildest dreams. He and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a mesmerising joyride through a world of pure imagination.

Now’s your chance to experience the wonders of Wonka! Get ready for the Oompa-Loompas, incredible inventions, costumes, sets and more, more, more at this everlasting showstopper!
