Step Inside a World of Pure Imagination

“A marvelous show for everyone. You’re guaranteed to have a ball!”   – NPR

Roald Dahl's amazing tale is now Durham’s golden ticket! It's the perfect recipe for a delectable treat: songs from the original film, including "Pure Imagination," "The Candy Man," and "I've Got a Golden Ticket," alongside a toe-tapping and ear-tickling new score from the songwriters of Hairspray. Get ready for Oompa-Loompas, incredible inventions, the great glass elevator, and more, more, more at this everlasting showstopper!
