Magical performance! It was truly an amazing experience. Fantabulously choreographed and each character played their role beautifully. The notions given by Mr Wonka were so true...lessons we learn in our journey of life. Absolute treat and a must watch if you are visiting Sydney.

This is a gorgeous old theatre. Enjoyed the show we saw here recently (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Seating is reasonably good and the ornate interior really sets the scene for a show. Negatives: Queue for food and beverages was very awkward. They seriously need...More
