AUSSIE WILLY WONKA TO MELT SYDNEY
CHARLIE Bucket will be scouring Sydney for his golden ticket when the musical version of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory opens at the Capitol Theatre in February 2019.
Casting is set to begin for Charlie, the title character in the musical adaptation of Roald
Dahl’s classic 1964 tale, local producers John
Frost and Craig Donnell announced yesterday.
With its everlasting gobstoppers, Oompa Loompas and chocolatier Willy Wonka, Dahl’s book has sold 20 million copies in 55 languages.
The musical premiered in London in 2013, and a Broadway version opened last year.
