Starting out as a children’s book to hitting the big screen for the first time in 1971 before Tim Burton delivered his take on the popular story in 2005, the story is now making its way to Hollywood in a unique way. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory will be in concert at the world famous Hollywood Bowl in a “Live to Film” celebration and lead by an all-star cast.

On November 3 and 4 you can be a part of a one-of-a-kind experience filled with singing, unique lights sounds and even smells. The cinematic event will star John Stamos (Full House) as Willy Wonka, Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things, It) as Charlie, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) singing the role of The Candy Man, and Richard Kind (Gotham) as Grandpa Joe, with musicians Elle King (“Ex’s & Oh’s”) singing Veruca Salt’s “I Want It Now,” Ingrid Michaelson as Mrs. Bucket, and “Weird Al” Yankovic as the Oompa Loompas.
