Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) will play host to the spectacular new musical ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’.
The show enjoyed successful seasons in Sydney and Melbourne but the scheduled QPAC season was unable to open due to the pandemic. Now, Queensland audiences will finally be able to step through the doors of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory this spring.
“We are pleased to once again collaborate with John Frost and The Gordon Frost Organisation to present this production following our successful partnership on ‘Shrek The Musical’ in January this year,” QPAC CEO John Kotzas says.
“Queenslanders love musicals, and we were determined to bring ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’ back to QPAC to ensure audiences would not miss the opportunity to be transported into ‘a world of pure imagination’.”

“This new production is based on the original Broadway version and closely mirrors the beloved original film, enchanting audiences with the story again as it comes to life on stage. While overseas travel is currently off the cards, we are delighted audiences can take in a little of Broadway in Brisbane and be filled with nostalgia when they experience this wonderful story.”
It’s anticipated that much of the original cast will return for the Brisbane run. ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’ is set to be the perfect recipe for a delectable treat. Audiences can expect to hear ‘Pure Imagination’, ‘The Candy Man’, ‘I’ve Got A Golden Ticket’ and more. Tickets are on sale 21 May. ’Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’ plays Queensland Performing Arts Centre 2-19 September.
