Roald Dahl's WILLY WONKA JR.

Roald Dahl's timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir is a golden ticket to adventure.

Adapted for the Stage by LESLIE BRICUSSE & TIMOTHY ALLEN McDONALD

Lyrics and Music by LESLIE BRICUSSE & ANTHONY NEWLEY

Based on the book: "CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY" by Roald Dahl.

"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 in addition to a host of fun new songs, Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka JR. is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone's sweet tooth.

Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka JR. 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, but 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. "
