Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


Noah Weisberg stars as Willy Wonka in the US tour of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Playing at Toronto’s Princess of Wales Theatre for a limited run, the acclaimed musical arrives after an award-winning world premiere in London’s West End in 2013 and a smash-hit Broadway run in 2017.

Step into a world of pure imagination with Jack O’Brien’s re-imagined production of the well-known, delicious musical! Following little Charlie Bucket, the story sees five children swipe golden tickets that give them a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see inside the factory of the most famous and eccentric candy-maker in the world.

What goes on inside Willy Wonka’s factory is a mystery, but Charlie Bucket is soon to find out. With a book by David Greig and music and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the show features toe-tapping tunes including “It Must Be Believed to Be Seen”, “Strike That, Reverse It” and the iconic “Pure Imagination”.

Principal casting includes Noah Weisberg (South Pacific, Legally Blonde, Modern Family) as Willy Wonka, alongside Henry Boshart, Collin Jeffrey and Rueby Wood as Charlie Bucket. Further cast members are James Young, Amanda Rose, Jessica Cohen, Madeleine Doherty, Kathy Fitzgerald, Nathaniel Hackmann, Daniel Quadrino, David Samuel, Brynn Williams and Matt Wood.

Originally directed by Sam Mendes, the revival is directed by Jack O’Brien (Hairspray) and features choreography by Joshua Bergasse, design by Mark Thompson, lighting design by Japhy Weideman and sound design by Andrew Keister.

A truly scrumptious musical packed with marvel and mystery, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a show that must be believed to be seen. Playing a limited season at Toronto’s Princess of Wales Theatre, the production runs from 20 November 2018 to 6 January 2019.
