I don't want to give up too much! It was a wonderful translation from movie (Gene Wilder version) to stage. It had all the favorite songs, characters and in fact this story line made a bit more sense than the movie. Truly fantastic!

Vernon Bush who portrays Willy Wonka could not be more enchanting and TREMENDOUS bringing this great material from Roald Dahl's book.

My family went to this event and we all thought it was fantastic, the performers were really good , and the stage show for a small theatre was terrific , we would highly recommend this show for other families. loved it Sharon S.F. CA
