Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Lyric Theatre, QPAC

Step inside a world of pure imagination when Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory comes to spectacular life on the Brisbane stage at Lyric Theatre, QPAC for a limited season from September 2 to 26, 2021.

Following successful seasons in Sydney and Melbourne, and after the scheduled 2020 QPAC season was unable to open due to the pandemic, Queensland audiences can at last step through the doors of Willy Wonka’s magical chocolate factory this spring.

Producer John Frost says he is thrilled that Queensland audiences will soon experience the wonders of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in this production, which is based on the original Broadway version and closely mirrors the beloved original film. “The world fell in love with Roald Dahl’s bewitching tale when the book was released, then filmgoers adored the 1971 film with Gene Wilder,” Mr Frost said.

Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the perfect recipe for a delectable treat, featuring songs from the original film including Pure Imagination, The Candy Man, I’ve Got a Golden Ticket alongside a toe-tapping and ear-tickling new score from the songwriters of Hairspray.
