Giveaway: Tickets to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at Walton Arts Center

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory live on stage from Nov. 30th through Dec. 5, 2021 at Walton Arts Center.

One of our favorite books, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, comes to life on stage at the Walton Arts Center. This huge show is rich in chocolate and candy, vibrant colorful stage scenery, larger-than-life characters and music you can’t stop singing. This week we’re giving away TWO tickets to the show on November 30, 2021. (The show is recommended for kids ages 8 and up.)

Here’s a video sneak peek that will give you a glimpse of this magical show.


Roald Dahl’s amazing tale is now Northwest Arkansas’ golden ticket! It’s the perfect recipe: songs from the original film, including “Pure Imagination,” “The Candy Man” and “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket,” alongside a toe-tapping and ear-tickling new score from the songwriters of Hairspray.

Willy Wonka is opening his marvelous and mysterious chocolate factor to a lucky few, including Charlie Bucket, whose bland life is about to burst with color and confection beyond his wildest dreams. He and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a  joyride through a world of pure imagination. Audiences will experience the wonders of Wonka like never before. Get ready for Oompa-Loompas, incredible inventions, the great glass elevator and much more at this everlasting showstopper.


If you’d love to win these 2 tickets to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, scroll down to the bottom of the post and past the comments posted by other local moms. Then write a quick comment telling us what kind of chocolate (or candy) is your absolute favorite. (It’s a really tough choice, but we’d probably have to go with those miniature Reece’s peanut butter cups. What’s your fave?)
