And the whole point of the show & Wonka's ethos is imagination & to have a physical elevator would somehow spoil that.
But I suppose we'll see.
Enjoyed the show overall, excellent cast & beautiful staging. The musical numbers aren't that memorable, although I liked whatever Wonka sang towards the end of Act One. And the one between Mr & Mrs Bucket was sweet. The kids' songs were OK but rather garbled in places, they are a bit too wordy. I couldn't hum anything except Pure Imagination now though. I liked Douglas Hodge.
A feel good show & children seem to love it. So sweet to hear them gasp in delight when Charlie got his golden ticket...!

But according to the rest of my party, Charlie made a paper plane which he throws/launches & it flies from stage left diagonally across the auditorium to the balcony. Very quick though.

Charlie is writing a letter to Mr. Wonka, and when he's done it flies off as a paper aeroplane. You expect it to be a prelude to the magic off the Factory and effects they'll use to make it magical - but it's not.
