The cast is made up of a lot of children, but actor Lance Howell plays Grandpa Joe in the production and stopped by GMC to serve up some tasty details.

The musical adaptation of the classic Charlie & The Chocolate Factory will wow kids and adults alike. He said it takes adults right back to their childhood and amazes kids.
