Roald Dahl’s delicious tale, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is a delectable treat featuring songs from the original film, including  Pure Imagination, The Candy Man and I’ve Got a Golden Ticket, alongside a brand new, toe-tapping Broadway score.

He and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a mesmerising joyride through a world of pure imagination.
