About this show

Chicago Shakespeare presents Willy Wonka, with music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley, adapted for the stage by Leslie Bricusse and Tim McDonald, based on the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. Joe Leonardo directs. Willy Wonka and his band of Oompa-Loompas lead sweet-natured Charlie Bucket and four other Golden Ticket winners on the tour of a lifetime through a mysterious candy-maker's fantastical factory. Featuring your favorite songs from the 1971 film--including "The Candy Man" and "Pure Imagination"--this theatrical adaptation is a sweet treat for children and adults alike!
