Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Hits the Stage in London
Date Posted: 14/06/13
Hot on the heels of the theatrical hit 'Matilda', a musical take on another Roald Dahl novel, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', is already being performed in London, ahead of a press performance on June 25th.
It follows two film adaptations of the classic book - one made in the early 70s and one in the mid 2000s.
According to the new stage production's website, the show is currently booking up to the end of November this year.
Willy Wonka, a part portrayed by Johnny Depp and Gene Wilder before now, is being played by Douglas Hodge in this version.
The book was first published in the mid 1960s and Dahl later penned a sequel, 'Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator'.
When it comes to theatre breaks London is certainly the English city with the largest number of shows on offer, so if you love seeing work on stage, why not treat yourself to a trip?
