Charlie & the Chocolate Factory

Until 31st May, 2014

We’ve waited and waited and it’s finally here. Roald Dahl’s infamous tale is brought to life on stage with spectacular sets and witty lyrics. The squirrels are fantastic, as are the Oompa Loompas and Mrs. Gloop. It’s a beautifully assembled production and bound to be a crowd pleaser.
