Information

Escape to a world of pure imagination with Roald Dahl’s Charlie and The Chocolate Factory – The Musical.

Based on the iconic story, this spectacular stage show follows the hit West End and Broadway productions to combine the memorable songs from the original 1970’s motion picture ( ‘The Candy Man’ and ‘Pure Imagination’) with all new numbers from the multi award-winning songwriters of Hairspray.

When Charlie Bucket finds one of the five golden tickets to the Wonka Chocolate Factory, Charlie and the other winners can’t wait to feast on the sweets of their dreams. But beyond the gates, they discover more than just remarkable edible delights. As they embark on an extraordinary journey through Willy Wonka’s marvellous mind, they soon learn that nobody leaves the same way that they arrived…

The weird and wonderful world of ROALD DAHL’S Charlie and The Chocolate Factory – The Musical will dazzle your senses when it plays  Birmingham Hippodrome in October 2023 as part of its first ever UK & Ireland Tour.

Every ticket is GOLDEN, book yours today!
