More Information on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – The Musical

A Leeds Playhouse production presented in association with Neal Street Productions & Playful Productions

‘Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two?’ 

Roald Dahl’s devilishly delicious tale of young golden ticket winner Charlie Bucket and wild confectionary wizard Willy Wonka will take you to a world of pure imagination this festive season.  

Charlie and The Chocolate Factory – The Musical features memorable songs from the iconic 1970s film as well as a host of sensational new tastebud-tickling toe-tappers. When Charlie wins a golden ticket to the weird and wonderful Wonka Chocolate Factory, it’s a chance of a lifetime to feast on the sweets they’ve always dreamed of. But beyond the gates astonishment awaits, as down the sugary corridors and amongst the incredible and edible delights, the five lucky winners discover not everything is as sweet as it seems. 

This dazzling reinvention of the successful West End and Broadway musical transports the show to mouth-watering new heights. Take a journey choc-full of fantastical treats to dazzle your senses for a festive family adventure more satisfying than a Whipple-Scrumptious Fudge Mallow Delight. Don’t miss out, grab your GOLDEN Ticket now! 

Based on the novel by Roald Dahl and the Warner Bros. film.

Reviews

Why is the age recommendation 7+?

It’s a full-length production (over 2 hours) which can be difficult for young people with a shorter attention span. The play includes smoke and haze, as well as more general mature themes that might not be totally appropriate for our youngest audiences. However, the age recommendation is just that – a recommendation. You are best placed to make a decision about what is appropriate for your students.

Captioned Performance

Open captioning allows theatre goers with varying degrees of hearing to view the full text as it is spoken or sung, including sound effects and off stage noises. These appear on a scrolling screen, positioned on or at the side of the stage.

British Sign Language Interpreted

A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.

Audio Described

Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.

Relaxed Performance

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.

Dementia-Friendly Performance

Dementia friendly performances are for all audiences. The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs. Additional dementia-aware staff, quiet spaces, clear signage and visual markers, sound and lighting adjustments and flexible seating options all help to create a supportive, shared experience.

Sing Along

Singalong with the cast in this exclusive performance. Join in as loud as you like, fancy dress is optional but highly recommended.

Post Show Discussion

Parent & Baby Performance

A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.

Socially Distanced

A guaranteed socially distanced performance provides seating with additional space between bubbles to allow appropriate social distancing.

Booking Fees:

*A transaction fee of £2.50 will be applied to all phone and internet bookings.
