The show brought back memories of Sammy Davis Junior. Charlie and Willie Wonka were very good but those Oompa Loompas stole the show.Had a great evening.

Was pleasantly surprised on how much I enjoyed this production. Super clever production brought to life by a very talented cast . “Charlie Bucket” was spectacular.

Choose a seat that works for you - I prefer being by the aisle. That's a choice to make wherever you go. Very classy and comfortable venue. Staff are very professional and helpful.

The visual creativity that went into producing this stage performance was outstanding. The play puts you in the chocolate factory and smiling for days. I went with my husband and two teenagers. I was shocked to see my teenagers laughing and captivated by the performance....More

The musical was amazing - the acting, dancing, singing, sets, lighting, special effects - all of it. A great experience as always at Mirvish theatre productions.

Great theatre - amazing show!! Just disappointed with the snack bar. I have a child with a nut allergy and there was absolutely nothing for them.
