25 November 2016 - 4 March 2017

Meet Amalia and Georg, who work as clerks in Maraczek’s Parfumerie -- and aren’t exactly the best of friends. However, they have something in common. They both rapturously write to romantic pen pals. Despite the anonymity of their secret admirers, they live for the love letters that they exchange and the day they will finally meet. This wonderful love story has been the basis for the films The Shop around the Corner and You’ve Got Mail. The musical version – written by the authors of Fiddler on the Roof – has delighted audiences since its 1963 Broadway premier and features a sparkling score that includes the now-classic songs Ice Cream and A Trip to the Library.

The show will be directed by Matthew White who returns to the Chocolate Factory where he previously directed Candide, Sweet Charity, Little Shop of Horrors and The Last Five Years.
