" A fresh, enthusiastic, first-tier tour!” ― Chicago Tribune

Thursday, February 17 Elliott Hall of Music 7:30pm Tickets: $32-68 PICK5+Group: $32-58

The eccentric, reclusive billionaires that captivate headlines still have a long way to go: Where are the exclusive, treacherous contests for their fans? Where are the identical staff members that sing at the drop of a purple top hat? Where’s the candy? Yes, Willy Wonka is still the blueprint for bizarre business owners, and Roald Dahl’s beloved sugarslinging CEO comes to life in the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory musical. The show follows Dahl’s classic tale of steadfastly positive Charlie Bucket and the mixed bag of meeting his candy-making hero. This stage adaptation features songs from the 1971 film—like “The Candy Man” and “Pure Imagination”—surrounded by a new score from the composers of Hairspray that’s sweeter than 70 Everlasting Gobstoppers.


Modern Renaissance PurdueU

x = independently organized TED event

Saturday, February 19 Loeb Playhouse 12pm Tickets: $11-16

Across more than 200 academic programs, the sheer amount of worldchanging research conducted on Purdue University's campus can be overwhelming. Luckily, TEDxPurdueU, an independently organized TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) event, breaks down some of that innovation into bite-sized, easily digestible presentations from the researchers themselves. This daylong event spans a diversity of fields, some that may be familiar with and others that may be new to you. Multimedia talks get to the main points in under 18 minutes for a fastmoving, educational and exhilarating experience. This year's theme is Modern Renaissance. Distress. Rebirth. Enlightenment. Modern Renaissance explores the dynamics of our social, cultural, and political world post-pandemic and how science, art, history, and social justice will reemerge in its wake. Support from
