Gareth Snook to play Willy Wonka in ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – The Musical’ at Leeds Playhouse & on 2023 UK tour!

Leeds Playhouse has today announced that Gareth Snook will play Willy Wonka in its exciting new production of Roald Dahl’s CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY – THE MUSICAL, which will premiere at Leeds Playhouse from 18 November 2022 to 28 January 2023, ahead of a major UK Tour.

FULL TOUR DATES LISTED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.

Gareth has played many leading roles in hit West End musicals including Monsieur André in The Phantom of the Opera at both Her Majesty’s Theatre and in the 25th Anniversary production at the Royal Albert Hall and Les Misérables in the West End. Most recently he appeared in Wise Children and Bagdad Café.

The scrumptious tale features memorable songs from the iconic 1970s film including ‘The Candy Man’ and ‘Pure Imagination’ plus brand-new songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. It also features an entrancing set created by award-winning designer Simon Higlett that will transform the Quarry stage at Leeds Playhouse into the chocolate-fuelled, magical and mysterious world of Willy Wonka’s factory.



This Leeds Playhouse production is presented in association with Neal Street Productions & Playful Productions and will be directed by Leeds Playhouse’s Artistic Director James Brining.

Adapted from Dahl’s novel by David Greig, with music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman, this dazzling reinvention of the successful West End and Broadway musical will transport audiences in Leeds and on tour to mouth-watering new heights of enjoyment.
