About the Show:
Directed by Berkeley Playhouse Artistic Director, Elizabeth McKoy.
Roald Dahl’s timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to life in this delicious stage adaptation. We are bringing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory back to its cinematic and musical roots – the 1970s. This is a funkadelic interpretation of the classic Roald Dahl story. We are using the musical flavor of the decade to reenergize this beloved classic. The heart-warming story of rediscovering love, faith and hope in the future is given new life and cultural resonance with a groovy, fun musical reimagining that places it firmly within the cultural context of the 1970s and features songs from the classic family film in a fresh and funky new way
