The musical version of Roald Dahl’s story expands on the 1971 film, featuring new music from Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman (in addition to “The Candy Man” and “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket” from the film). The choreography on this traveling show has also been tightened up compared to the Broadway version. Sweet!

See website for full schedule; Detroit Opera House, 1526 Broadway St., Detroit; 313-961-3500; broadwayindetroit.com. Tickets start at $29. Through March 1.
