CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY to Dazzle at Orpheum Theatre

CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY to Dazzle at Orpheum Theatre Join the "world of pure imagination" as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory plays at the Orpheum Theatre Nov. 5-10, 2019.

For more than 50 years, Roald Dahl's story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has captured imaginations around the world, and now for the first time audiences around the country are invited to experience Willy Wonka's delightful and semi-dark chocolate world first-hand.

Willy Wonka, world famous inventor of the Everlasting Gobstopper, has just made an astonishing announcement. His marvelous-and mysterious-factory is opening its gates...to a lucky few. That includes young Charlie Bucket, whose life definitely needs sweetening. He and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a mesmerizing, life- changing journey through Wonka's world of pure imagination. Get ready for exquisitely nutty squirrels and the great glass elevator, all to be revealed by Wonka's army of curious Oompa-Loompas.

The current tour cast features Noah Weisberg as "Willy Wonka," Henry Boshart, Collin Jeffery and Rueby Wood as "Charlie Bucket," James Young as "Grandpa Joe," Amanda Rose as "Mrs. Bucket," Jessica Cohen as "Veruca Salt," Madeleine Doherty as "Mrs. Teavee," Kathy Fitzgerald as "Mrs. Gloop," Nathaniel Hackmann as "Mr. Salt," Daniel Quadrino as "Mike Teavee," David Samuel as "Mr. Beauregarde," Brynn Williams as "Violet Beauregarde" and Matt Wood as "Augustus Gloop."

The ensemble includes Sarah Bowden, Alex Dreschke, Jess Fry, David R. Gordon, Chavon Hampton, Benjamin Howes, Lily Kaufmann, David Paul Kidder, Jennifer Jill Malenke, Joe Moeller, Tanisha Moore, Claire Neumann, Caylie Rose Newcom, Joel Newsome, Clyde Voce and Borris Anthony York. Elijah Dillehay, Sabrina Harper, Karen Hyland, Kevin Nietzel, Kristin Piro and Armando Yearwood Jr. are the company's swings.
