Finn Wolfhard announces role as Charlie in live 'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory'.

Finn Wolfhard has just announced that he’ll be a part of the upcoming live musical of ‘Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory’, playing the lead role of Charlie Bucket - alongside John Stamos as Willy Wonka, and Weird Al Yankovic as the Oompa Loompas.

The 'Live To Film' celebration will take place at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl on November 3rd and 4th, and each attendee will be given a scratch-n-sniff Golden Ticket, with different smells that are designed for specific scenes.

The concert director Richard Kraft said the following about the performance: “We are mixing in film, live music, singers, dancers, effects and special guest artists to create an event that pays homage to the original movie but also delivers something that could only be experienced live. Our creative mantra for this show has been, ‘Anything you want to: Do it.'”

Tickets for Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl: A Live-to-Film Celebration will go on sale September 23rd at 10am.
