ROALD DAHL’S CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY

The Community Arts Center is thrilled to announce that Roald Dahl’s CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY will play the CAC stage on February 1st at 6:30 PM.

Roald Dahl’s CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY tells the story of Willy Wonka, world famous inventor of the Everlasting Gobstopper, who has just made an astonishing announcement. His marvelous—and mysterious—factory is opening its gates…to a lucky few. That includes young Charlie

Bucket, whose life definitely needs sweetening. He and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a mesmerizing, life-changing journey through Wonka’s world of pure imagination. Get ready for Oompa- Loompas, incredible inventions, the great glass elevator, and more, more, more at this everlasting showstopper! The hit Broadway musical features songs from the original film, including; Pure Imagination; The Candy Man; and We’ve Got a Golden Ticket, alongside a toe-tapping and ear-tickling new score from the songwriters from Hairspray. Roald Dahl’s CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY is produced by NETworks Presentations. For more information, visit www.CharlieOnTour.com. ABOUT ROALD DAHL AND HIS LEGACY Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was a spy, ace fighter-pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the World’s No.1 storyteller. Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own hipbone (which he’d had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil (made from years’ worth of chocolate wrappers), he went on to write some of the world’s best-loved children’s stories. His first children’s story, James and the Giant Peach, was published in 1961, was a hit and every subsequent book became a best-seller. Today, his stories are available in 58 languages and, by a conservative estimate, he has sold more than 250 million books. Many of these stories have also been adapted for stage and screen, including the 1971 film classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Wes Anderson’s acclaimed Fantastic Mr Fox, the multi-award winning Matilda The Musical from the RSC with music by Tim Minchin, and Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster The BFG. The latest adaptation is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the Musical which opened on Broadway in April 2017 following three Golden years on London’s West End.
