Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Feeling imaginative and adventurous after a tour of the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory.

What an uplifting musical! To know it’s okay to dream. To see things that aren’t there. To make something out of nothing. When others say “it shouldn’t be done”, you say “but it can be done!”

Amazing job by Paul Slade Smith and Ryan Sell as Willy Wonka and Charlie Bucket. Gorgeous dancing by Emma Pfaeffle. Also, love the ensemble and Oompa Loompas throughout the show including It Must Be Believed To be Seen, Veruca’s Nutcracker Secret, and the final tap piece. Bravos!

Kudos to the creative set, lighting, and Oompa Loompa puppet designs as well. They add an incredible sense of mystery and magic to the chocolate factory.
