Stamos, Wolfhard, Weird Al Do A “Wonka” Concert

“Stranger Things” and “It” star Finn Wolfhard is Charlie Bucket and John Stamos is Willy Wonka in an upcoming live-in-concert adaptation of the classic 1970s film version of Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”

“Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl: A Live-to-Film Celebration” will run November 3rd and 4th at the L.A. concert space.

The cast also includes ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic as the Oompa Loompas, Elle King as Veruca Salt, Giancarlo Esposito as The Candy Man, Ingrid Michaelson as Mrs. Bucket, and Richard Kind as Grandpa Joe.

Musical numbers from the Oscar-nominated score will be performed live onstage accompanied by multi-instrumental band DeVotchka and a musical ensemble conducted by Jeff Hoeppner.

The show will be presented in Smell-O-Rama, which means attendees will be presented with exclusive Scratch-N-Sniff Golden Tickets. The concert will also feature a costume contest and special projections on the surface of the Bowl by illustrator Shag.

Tickets go on sale September 23rd.
