The musical features a book by Emma Rice, lyrics by Christopher Dimond and music by Michael Kooman. It tells the love story of a shy chocolate maker and the awkward boss of a chocolate factory. It played a highly successful run in London in 2017. with former cast members expected to reprise their roles. Casting will be announced soon.

The show will be a full production with tickets costing £15. The production said "The company has been isolating together in one large bubble for the last two weeks so that the show can be performed in its original form – with no social distancing! There will be singing, dancing and chocolate eating… and, if true love has its way, even kissing… Imagine that!"
