Charlie and the Chocolate Factory The Musical

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory The Musical celebrated its 1st anniversary last week with a gala performance.

Directed by Sam Mendes, the show marked its first anniversary with new cast Alex Jennings and Barry James leading the curtain call. An after party was thrown for guests, cast and crew to mark the momentous occasion.

In attendance were guests including Ben Forster, Rebecca Front, Dani Harmer, Charlotte Jaconelli, Hannah Reid, Adrian Scarborough, Helen Skelton and Richie Myler.

Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has quickly become one of the West End’s most popular and successful stage musicals. It won two Olivier awards in April 2014, and has broken records at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, where it has been seen by over 750,000 people since it opened in June 2013. It is currently taking bookings until 30 May 2015.
