Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka
Music and Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse
Adapted for the Stage by Leslie Bricusse and Timothy Allen McDonald
Based on the Book “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl

Edmonds Driftwood Players' musical production of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka will play at the Wade James Theatre, 950 Main Street, Edmonds, November 24 - December 17, 2023. 

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka follows enigmatic candy manufacturer, Willy Wonka, as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. 

Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats: the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory… or suffer the consequences…
