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.

Very cleverly written. Sometimes the script would pass by so quickly that it would take some thought as to what happened! Liked the enthusiasm of the actors, who obviously are extremely talented to have memorized the script and presented it with such precision. This is a play which seeing it again would help the viewer catch up with the fast pace. Overall it was a great experience.
Quotes & Highlights
“The play’s shockingly optimistic tone is downright subversive when you consider its subject: what it means to be a success in America. How are the new legends made? Slightly unsound of mind and decidedly stout of heart.” —_Louisville Courier-Journal _
“There’s exuberance and bounce in Nachtrieb’s voice, and Bob evinces a loving, Ira Glass-y eye for off-kilter Americana.” —Rob Kendt, _American Theatre Magazine _
Directed by Sean Daniels
It is said that Bob was born on Valentine’s Day in the bathroom of a White Castle Restaurant in Kentucky. It is said that Bob’s birth mother Helen had a particular loneliness on this holiday that only a certain greasy cuisine could soothe. Armed with nothing but unfailing optimism, Bob is the epic, fast-paced comedy of one man’s dream to be great. The greatness of Bob.
