The mysterious Willy Wonka is opening his Chocolate Factory for just one day, and for Charlie Bucket it promises to be a mouth-watering chance to feast his eyes on sweets beyond his wildest imagination.

World premiere stage production.

Taking on the role of Willy Wonka from 19 May is Alex Jennings. He is the only performer to have won an Olivier Award in the Drama, Musical and Comedy categories, winning Best Actor for Peer Gynt (1996), Best Actor in a Musical for My Fair Lady (2003), and Best Comedy Performance for Too Clever By Half (1988). He is an Associate at the National Theatre and the RSC and has had a wide and varied career on stage, screen and radio.
