This scrumdiddlyumptious stage show is based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl's timeless and beloved children's book, as well as the subsequent musical film adaptation (Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory) starring Gene Wilder. Featuring some of the infectious songs from the classic film -- including catchy tunes like "The Candy Man" and "Pure Imagination" -- this take on Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka adds some brand new original songs into the mix. So grab your golden ticket and go behind the closed doors of Mr. Wonka's mysterious chocolate factory with Charlie Bucket, discovering one Oompa Loompa doopi-delicious delight after the next (with a hearty dash of peril thrown in for good measure) on this one-of-a-kind journey.

This was a thought-provoking 90 minute production with no intermission. The play was fast paced and the rapid settings changes were quickly accomplished with little distraction to the audience. Actors performances were excellent. There is some dialogue and other content of a sexual nature that some parents may find not suitable for younger teens. My 13 year old found some of the dialogue "creepy", but my 15 year old was fine with it. All was tasteful and I wasn't uncomfortable with my children seeing it. Of course each family is different.
About the Ticket Supplier: Mildred's Umbrella Theater CompanyMildred's Umbrella began in 2001 when local actress Jennifer Decker and poet and playwright John Harvey (Ph.D., University of Houston Creative Writing Dept.) decided to bring together a group of artists and actors to create a collaborative theatrical piece written by John Harvey. The production was a success, earning positive press attention and the attention of many other local artists who wanted to be involved in future productions, and inspired the duo to achieve non-profit status and make plans for another production.
Over the course of several years and under the energetic guidance of artistic director Jennifer Decker, Mildred's Umbrella has expanded to also staging Houston premieres of work from other playwrights and to searching out opportunities for creative collaborations with other local theater groups and artists.
