Experiencing the escapism and the freedom of imagination that a stage offers should be open to all.
On Monday 15th September the 2014 Puffin Virtually Live: Roald Dahl Day will be streamed live from the London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane, home of the brand new musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
This year children will be able to celebrate 50 whipple-scrumptious years of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with PUFFIN VIRTUALLY LIVE: ROALD DAHL DAY!
Hosted by former Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton, there will be tremendous treats in store, including:
Roald Dahl’s legendary principal illustrator, Sir Quentin Blake, drawing and talking about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Willy Wonka-inspired cookery feature starring Justin Gellatly, author of Bread, Cake, Doughnut, Pudding
A live sing-along performance of Pure Imagination led by the cast of the gigantic new musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Together with Q&As and lots of mischievous surprises, such as exclusive new videos and Charlie Bucket Eye-Spy bingo cards, there’s plenty of fun to keep classes of boys and girls aged 7 - 12 entertained!
How much do I want to be there?!!?
You can prepare by downloading one (or more) of ten delicious Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lesson plans, created by the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre’s Education team. And you can also download the ‘Pure Imagination’ lyric sheets to start learning the words and warming your vocal chords before the big day!
So, whilst not everyone can be at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, you can be there at 2pm!
See you there.
