Charlie and The Chocolate Factory


Victoria Discovers was invited to Her Majesty Theatre to review the multi award winning stage musical “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”

Based on the much loved 1964 Children’s Classic book by Roald Dahl. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is about a young boy who comes from a very close family that spends every penny they have taking care of their bedridden elderly grandparents, leaving no money left for treats or chocolate. However, our boy Charlie finds a golden ticket that grants him a tour around Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory. Though what is hidden behind the factory gate is nothing he is ever able to dream of…

This heart felt tail will take you on a live action, musical and magical adventure of a world of pure imagination.

Victoria Discovers saw the lead role of Charlie Bucket being played by St Kilda local Edgar Stirling and wow! What a show stopping performance he gave. Stirling (aged 10), who has been been receiving vocal training for the past 3 years with The Australian Boys Choir, gave an emotional and heart felt performance. Producing a beautiful, soul stirring delivery that was able bring a smile and melt the heart of every member of the audience.

Though we also have to give a special mention to his sensational dance moves. Stirling didn’t miss a beat as he moved his way through the entire factory.

Stirling has brought pride to the performance companies that he trains with, both the Young Australian Broadway Chorus and the Australian Boys Dance Academy. Not to mention every single St Kilda local.

Edgar Stirling, the whole of Victoria is so very proud to be able to call you one of our own.

Check out this oompa loompa, sweet and tasty, imaginative, elevator shooting for the stars production before it melts away (or gets eaten)…
