JUST about everybody has at some time read the book or watched the movie of Roald Dahl's classic story of Charlie Bucket's discovery of one of five special golden tickets, inviting him to visit Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

THE sugary antics of this classic book has now been unveiled for the Puddlejumper Youth Theatre's premier performance of the year.

The show opened in Laidley to great acclaim and laughter last weekend and Puddlejumper is inviting everyone to see their rendition of the story unfold on the stage again this weekend.

Join Charlie and Grandpa Joe on this magical trip to the "Chocolate Room", to see the greedy Augustus come to a sticky end in the Chocolate River, spolit rich kid Veruca Salt being helped down the garbage shoot by the squirrels, as well as TV addict Mike, and the gum chewing Violet..

Charlie seems to be the only kid left standing. What will happen to him?

Find out this weekend at the Laidley Cultural Centre.

Bar and light refreshments available.

Tickets can be purchased from NewsXpress Laidley, Shoe Collections in Gatton or at the door.
