After the success of Matilda the Musical, producers are again turning to beloved children’s author Roald Dahl for the next West End smash-hit. One of his most popular books, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will premiere as a new musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in summer 2013, with an official opening date of 25 June.

The show tells the story of a young boy, Charlie, who wins a golden ticket to tour the eccentric Willy Wonka’s magical chocolate factory. With some spoilt, gluttonous, and mischievous co-winners in tow, Charlie’s lovable grandfather accompanies him on this adventure through a maze of candy-coated delights, from chocolate rooms to the inventing room, all presided over by Willy Wonka and his staff, the elfin Oompa Loompas. The book has been turned into a film on two occasions, the first being a musical starring Gene Wilder and renamed Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which featured songs such as “The Candy Man Can,” “I Want It Now,” “Pure Imagination,” and the unmistakable “Oompa Loompa.” The book then inspired the 2005 film adaptation directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka. Roald Dahl was famously displeased with the 1971 version, and his estate had full artistic control over this new movie, resulting in a darker tone more in keeping with the original book.

Starring Douglas Hodge as Willy Wonka (until 17 May 2014) and Alex Jennings (from 19 May 2014), Nigel Planer as Grandpa Joe, Clive Carter as Mr Salt, Jasna Ivir as Mrs Gloop, Paul J Medford as Mr Beauregarde, Iris Roberts as Mrs Teavee, Billy Boyle as Grandpa George, Alex Clatworthy as Mrs Bucket, Roni Page as Grandma Josephine, Myra Sands as Grandma Georgina and Jack Shalloo as Mr Bucket.
