If a wish granter can’t grant wishes, will it be a happily never after? Not this once-upon-a-time! Starring in I Wish, acclaimed theater artist and contemporary opera singer Le Gateau Chocolat crescendos to centerstage as the mysteriously magic-less Wish Giver. On a musical quest to recover their powers, they step into the shoes of beloved storybook characters, managing mystical messes and learning that, while life’s not always fair(ytales), love and acceptance can be more than fantasy.
Le Gateau Chocolat remains a powerfully positive force.
Born in London and raised in Nigeria, Le Gateau Chocolat’s work spans cabaret, opera, musical theater and live art. His celebrated baritone has rung through prestigious venues around the world, from London’s Royal Albert Hall to the Sydney Opera House. He has created and performed many original shows, including Duckie, a lauded adaptation of “The Ugly Duckling” that introduces young people to ideas of otherness, tolerance and self-acceptance.
Transforming young lives through theater has been at the heart of Unicorn Theatre’s mission for nearly 75 years. Now the largest children’s theater in the UK, Unicorn began in 1949 as the touring Caryl Jenner Mobile Theatre, performing for kids in theatre-less towns across post-war England before changing names and settling down at London’s Arts Theatre in the 1960s. Unicorn opened a permanent home by London Bridge in 2005 and now welcomes 65,000 family and school audience members each year.
