`Chocolate Factory' sweet treat


January 30, 2003|By Lori Sears

Bring your sweet tooth to the Baltimore Children's Theatre production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at Slayton House and the Baltimore Museum of Art in February and March. It's a staged version of Roald Dahl's classic book about young Charlie Bucket's adventures at Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

Featuring all the favorite characters from the book -- Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde, Veruca Salt, Grandpa Jo, Willy and Charlie -- the show stars local children and professional adult actors.

Baltimore Children's Theatre offers a tasty spin on the original story, with Dancing Candy Kisses handing out candy to audience members. The production also will feature new musical arrangements and a video screen that will show recorded TV interviews of "Golden Ticket" winners. Mark Andrew Beachy directs and produces the show. See Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on stage at 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Feb. 8 and at 2 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Feb. 15 at Slayton House, Wilde Lake Village Green, Columbia. See the show at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. March 29 at the Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Drive. $10 at the door; $8 in advance. Call 410-203-1757.
