What an amazing show!!! So well cast, superb lighting, costumes, dancing, .... a HIT from start to finish. For a couple of hours, we weren't sitting in a theatre - we were transported to a magical place that took our breath away. Pure joy, pure delight, pure imagination! Bravo!

Start your holidays off with wonderful Wonka wonderland of talented actors who sing and dance into your childlike heart. I love musical theatre but my husband doesn’t and he smiled ear to ear the entire evening! Charlie and the Chocolate Factory deserves a 10!!!!

I have been looking forward to seeing this play for months. I was not disappointed. I loved every second of this candy land. Noah Weisberg did an amazing sensational job. I could see him play Willie wonka in a movie. His character was hysterical and charming. He can sing n dance too!!! The only thing I would recommend to the directors is add chocolate smell in the air. This play brought back wonderful childhood memories. Thank you.

I was surprised with tickets to the show for my birthday! I was so excited to see the show and it was awesome! The casting was perfect,loved how it puts a modern spin on the movie. A lot of kiddos in audience and I was so happy to see them and how much they loved it! A show for all ages and all people, come for a hockey game one day see the show the next? Thank you to everyone, beautiful day for myself and my fiancé.

Unexpected tickets for me to take 6 yr. old Granddaughter to Boston. Aisle seating in Orchrester were spectacular for us both. We had read the book before going so knew storyline. The backdrops were first class, music top notch, and actors very believable! We both went home, in an ice storm, and exclaimed about the entire experience for days.

I went in with some trepidation having been told that the Globe review indicated that it was dark and not very good. Entirely wrong. This was a wonderful presentation of the material. I took my 13 year old niece who has been performing in shows for several years now and she loved it. I particularly liked the performances of WW and Charlie's mother. Also casting the spoiled girl as daughter of a Russian Oligarch was great fun as was the girl as a YouTube star and the tech addicted young man. If this had had a longer run I might have gone again.

I saw the musical in Toronto last night and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish! Charlie and The other 4 kids where great as was Willy Wonka and the "Oompa Loompa's".... Some other audience members and I thought that the only thing missing was having CHOCOLATE handed out with the programme as we entered the theatre!! Wonderful ensemble cast and an unexpected magical evening.

ENTHRALLING exciting Unmissable

As the lights fade and the fuelled giggles are heard, I realize that a Roald Dahl fan will forever be young at heart!

What could possibly go wrong? As the lights fade and the fuelled giggles are heard, I realize that a Roald Dahl fan will forever be young at heart! In this marvellously colorful production, Charlie Bucket reminds us that it doesn't matter where you come
