Academy Award-winning film director Sam Mendes is bringing Roald Dahl's much-loved children's tale to the stage.

Everyone knows the story already because we read it when we were kids, but I'll tell you again anyway (just in case you didn't)... it's all about poor little Charlie Bucket after he finds a lucky Golden Ticket hidden in a chocolate bar -- winning him a tour of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.

But this is no ordinary tour, and it's no ordinary factory! Charlie gets to see chocolate fountains, an army of squirrels, and the funny little orange Oompa-Loompas people. But it's when he learns of Willy Wonka's secret new sweet that he gets really excited...
