The West End production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the Musical has broken records in its final weeks at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. The final Christmas week in the West End broke all records for ticket sales at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, delighting more audience members than ever before. The production, which opened officially on 22 May 2013, will play its final performance at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on 7 January 2017, concluding an impressive run of over three and a half years.
Two years on from its starry West End premiere in June 2013, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has earned its place as a popular family and schools attraction. And even if it doesn't quite reach the same ground-breaking theatrical heights as Matilda, another musical based on a Roald Dahl story, there's plenty to deliver a memorable theatrical experience nonetheless.
