wonkaOn the 21st of January Lister Years 7, 8 and 9 students visited The Theatre Royal, Drury lane. We were part of an audience to see ROALD DAHL’s deliciously dark tale of young Charlie Bucket and the mysterious confectioner Willy Wonka come to life in a brand new West End musical directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes. Everyone enjoyed it and I mean EVERYONE enjoyed every minute of the production from the chocolate garden to the army of squirrels not to mention the curiously peculiar Oompa-Loompas. The cast was very entertaining, especially the lyrically genius rapper, Violet Beauregarde, The ‘Double Bubble Duchess’. We had a sensational time, one we will never forget!
