by Leslie Bricusse and Timothy Allen McDonald
Music and Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley
 
Directed by Sherrie Hildreth
 
The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka's mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantastical tale. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder and new songs by Leslie Bricusse (Jekyll & Hyde, Doctor Dolittle) and Anthony Newley, Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone's sweet tooth.
 
Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka follows enigmatic candy manufacturer, Willy Wonka, as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats: the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory... or suffer the consequences.
 
Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka has been created with educators and student performers in mind. With this show's flexible cast size, featuring roles for all ages, this is an ideal show for community theatres looking to involve as many performers as possible. Filled with imaginative design possibilities, Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka will take audiences on a fantasy ride into the land of pure imagination!
