Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka

In this scrumdiddlyumptious musical, Willy Wonka stages a world-wide contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his candy bars. These five lucky winners win a free tour of the Wonka factory and a lifetime supply of candy, but they quickly learn they must follow Mr. Wonka's rules or suffer the consequences.
