The enigmatic Willy Wonka is opening the gates to his fabled factory…but only to a lucky few. Impoverished young Charlie Bucket and four other golden ticket winners embark on a life-changing journey through Wonka’s off-kilter world that includes chocolate waterfalls, nutty squirrels, and of course Wonka’s crew of mischievous Oompa-Loompas. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory features an original score composed by Marc Shaiman with lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray) yet features treasured songs from the 1971 film including “Pure Imagination,” “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket,” “Oompa Loompa Song,” and “Candy Man.” The whole family will be gobstopped by this dazzling and heartwarming tale of humility, curiosity, and hope.

–“An epic, family-friendly adventure.” (Chicago Tribune)
