Roald Dahl’s timeless tale centered on Charlie Bucket’s journey to a confectionary wonderland will include Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley’s classics from the beloved 1971 film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” including “Pure Imagination,” “The Candy Man” and “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket.” There are also new songs from Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the Tony Award-winning songwriters of “Hairspray.”

Audiences can anticipate an evening of incredible inventions, the great glass elevator and the one-and-only Oompa-Loompas.
