One of the most highly anticipated musicals of 2013, the new theatrical extravaganza, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will be hitting the West End next month at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
Following the huge success of Matilda the Musical, another of Roald Dahl’s famous stories is brought to the musical stage and is set to be the biggest show of the summer. It’s top of our list!
Oscar-winner Sam Mendes directs this first stage adaptation of the book, and says that ‘for me the big job of the show is to render the familiar strange again. To make us forget that this little boy wins the golden ticket, and to make us experience that pleasure and thrill when you first turn that page in the book.’
We can’t wait to see the oompa loopas, which are said to be a ‘big surprise’. Intriguing!
If you’re looking for a London theatre hotel break, this is the ticket! We’re in a great location to get to the West End. Book yourself one of our luxury rooms and you’ll be all set. If you have little ones, have a peek at our Family Time package.
