Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

We are so excited to welcome the cast of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Woolworths Carols in the Domain 

The spectacular new musical Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is coming to Australia and will be playing only in Sydney at the Capitol Theatre from 5 January 2019. 

Four boys will share the role of Charlie Bucket in this delicious tale, Oliver Alkhair (11 years of age, from Panania), Tommy Blair (11, Engadine), Xion Jarvis (9, Burwood Heights) and Ryan Yeates (13, Canada Bay). Charlie lives with his mother and his four grandparents in a little wooden house near a great town, and is the final child to find a Golden Ticket. 

Willy Wonka, the most amazing, fantastic, extraordinary chocolate maker the world has ever seen, will be played by Paul Slade Smith. Slade Smith is currently appearing in the Broadway revival of My Fair Lady at Lincoln Center, and was part of the original Broadway cast of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, appearing as Grandpa George. 

These plus a slew of other favourites of the stage will be taking up roles in the musical in 2019!
