ROALD DAHL's deliciously dark tale of young Charlie Bucket and the mysterious confectioner Willy Wonka comes to life in a brand new musical.

When Charlie wins a golden ticket to the weird and wonderful Wonka Chocolate Factory, it's the chance of a lifetime to feast on the sweets he's always dreamed of. But beyond the gates astonishment awaits, as down the sugary corridors and amongst the incredible edible delights, the five lucky winners discover not everything is as sweet as it seems. A chocolate garden, an army of squirrels and the curiously peculiar Oompa-Loompas must be believed to be seen in this spectacular new musical that is choc-full of fantastical treats to dazzle your senses.

Big Hair. Big Heart. Big Beats. Big Decisions. Big Risks. Big Change. Big…Girl. GOOD MORNING BALTIMORE!

It is 1962, and one girl’s dream to be a star will not be ignored. Despite warnings from family and friends that she will be ridiculed for her size, Tracy Turnblad proves that her heart and talent are larger than her weight, her hair, or any naysayers. Along her way to fame, she and her dancing friends, Penny, Link, Motormouth Maybelle, Seaweed and Little Inez, turn an entire town and it’s thinking on its head. Fame can come and go, some is earned; some comes through who you know. What you do with it defines you. Standing up and embracing who you are can be the most powerful “fame” of all, regardless of size, color, or age. Based on a true event in Baltimore history, a popular television dance show, The Corny Collins Show, becomes a leader in moving forward the cause of racial integration. Just as larger girls see a role model in Tracy, the appearance of black dancers on television helps to inspire acceptance, the courage to stand up as a community, romance, and hope for a better tomorrow. Dance is the common language that brings everyone together, because in the end, You Can’t Stop the Beat. Now, Run and Tell That!
