Toronto Life - - Culture -

Toronto is get­ting a golden ticket to Roald Dahl’s kids’ clas­sic. This splashy mu­si­cal ver­sion of the beloved novel, in which poor boy Char­lie Bucket takes a spell­bind­ing tour of mys­te­ri­ous candy man Willy Wonka’s mag­i­cal fac­tory, had its stage de­but on Broad­way last year. Now, the Oompa Loom­pas are mak­ing their way to Canada for a show that mixes new mu­sic by Hair­spray song­writ­ers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman with mem­o­rable tunes from the beloved 1971 movie.
