Book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Show Tickets at Royal Drury Lane Theatre London
London’s oldest theatre venue, Theatre Royal Drury Lane has been entertaining masses since 1663. The venue has been visited by every ruling Monarch of Britain ever since its restoration, an honour that is rare for any of the theatre houses in Britain. It was here that the National Anthem of Britain and the Rule Britain songs were sung before the public for the first time.
Famed actor of his time, David Garrick took up the management of the Drury Lane Theatre in 1747 and was instrumental in introducing some crucial reforms to the venue. The present building is the fourth one built at the site and it opened in 1812. Benjamin Wyatt designed the venue and its facade still today bears the same appearance as it was when first performance was hosted here.
Edmund Keane with his performance as Shylock became a star overnight here, the legendary clown Joseph Grimaldi made appearance here in his farewell benefit performance. Some spectacular scene that were shot at the Drury Lane Theatre London during those time when special effects and graphics weren’t known include Alpine avalanches, underwater fights, a train crash, sinking of ships, air balloons and The Chelsea Flower Show.
The Drury Lane Theatre London has been home to some outstanding Noel Coward shows including Cavalcade and Pacific 1860. It also witnessed great success while hosting Ivor Novello’s shows like Glamorous Night (1935), Careless Rapture (1936), Crest of the Wave (1937) and The Dancing Years (1939).
The Royal Drury Lane Theatre is expected to repeat the great success it has experienced in past with its upcoming show. The fantasy of dark chocolates will commence its run here from 25th June 2013 following previews that will start from 18th May. The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will reveal audiences the secret hidden beneath the walled corridors of Willy Wonka’s factory. Based on Roald Dahl’s story, the show will take you to the chocolaty world where reside the Oompa-Loompas and an army of squirrels.
Charlie has won a Golden Tickets promising entry to such a factory along with Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregard and Mike Teavee. Augustus on his entry to the mysterious world has been sucked up after falling into chocolate. Violet while trying to chew an experimental gum has been blown to a blueberry while Veruca is thrown out by the squirrels from the Nut Rooms for being the bad nut. After Mike becomes the prey to Wonka’s teleporter, Charlie is the only child left within the bizarre factory with the chocolatier Wonka.
Will Charlie fall prey to some of Wonka’s eccentric tricks or some grand surprises waits for him there? Catch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory London show at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane London this June and find it out yourself.
