The 'Charlie And The Chocolate Factory' Musical Is Coming To Australia! Warner Bros.

Prepare yourselves, Australia, because one of the biggest musicals is about to head down under and amaze you all with it's elaborate sets and costumes!

The Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Musical has been wowing audiences in London and the UK and now, Australia will be able to get a taste of Willy Wonka and his amazing chocolate factory in 2019!

The musical will make its Australian debut at The Capitol Theatre in Sydney and although critics haven't been fully won over by the production, the show's Australian producer Craig Donnell told The Sydney Morning Herald that audiences will love it!

"When you go back and look at some of these shows, Wicked wasn’t reviewed well when it first opened on Broadway.

"I think what (director) Jack (O'Brien) has achieved with the production is tremendous, it entails all the components people know and love and the attributes people love from the film."


Craig also pointed out that the musical's four-year run in London is a clear indicator of how much audiences love it!

"I think anything that plays four years at the Royal Theatre Drury Lane certainly deserves our attention."

The songs from the original film will be included in the Australian production, so if you can remember all of them, you better make sure you're ready to sing along.

"It's a big production, people can really expect a big broadway extravaganza.

"It is full classic entertainment with Pure Imagination, The Candy Man, I've Got A Golden Ticket and also some beautiful new songs that have been brought into this production."


The show will start its Australian run in January 2019 and auditions to find the child who will be lucky enough to play Charlie, will be held after Easter.

So get ready to step into a world of pure imagination, right here in Australia!
