Willy Wonka will close his factory in Sydney on 21 July and move it to Melbourne after six wondrous months and hundreds of thousands of deliciously happy customers. Sydney has embraced Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with both audience and critical acclaim, many performances selling out. All ages are loving the familiar story, the colourful characters and especially the Oompa-Loompas!
