Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

You’ve got a Golden Ticket for April 2025.

That’s right, in April 2025 we’ll be debuting Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Amey Theatre in Abingdon.  This promises to be a magical week for cast, crew and audience, so make sure you grab your golden ticket when they go on sale later this year.

A Golden Ticket, just for you!!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a musical based on the 1964 children’s novel of the same name by Roald Dahl, with book by David Greig, music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman.  As most of us know, it tells the story of Charlie Bucket and his desperate search for the golden ticket that will enable him to enter the secretive Chocolate Factory of Mr Willy Wonka.

The show originally opened at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, in June 2013 and almost immediately broke the West End’s record for ticket sales – a record it still holds.  It ran until 2017, when a reworked production moved to Broadway.  It is this Broadway production that was licensed for international touring productions and, later, amateur theatre.

Today, there are professional tours across the US, UK and Australia, but at AOS we have been lucky enough to fit our production between tours, which allows us to create a brand new production for Abingdon.
