Snap Scene: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Her Majesty’s Theatre – 15th August 2019

Following a hugely successful six-month season at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre last Friday.

Willy Wonka, the most amazing, fantastic, extraordinary chocolate maker the world has ever seen, is played by Paul Slade Smith. Slade Smith was part of the original Broadway cast of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, appearing as Grandpa George, and most recently appeared in the Broadway revival of My Fair Lady at Lincoln Center.

Five boys share the role of Charlie Bucket in Melbourne in this delicious tale, Benjamin Belsey (10 years of age, from Point Cook), Elijah Slavinskis (10, Ashburton), Edgar Stirling (10, St Kilda), Lenny Thomas (12, Bonbeach) and Lachlan Young (13, Camberwell). Charlie lives with his mother and his four grandparents in a little wooden house near a great town and is the final child to find a Golden Ticket.
