Willy Wonka Jr.
Join Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka's mysterious chocolate factory in this captivating musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantastical tale. Featuring enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder in addition to a host of fun new songs, Willy Wonka JR. is a scrumdidilyumptious adventure guaranteed to delight everyone's sweet tooth.
The timeless story follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable Grandpa Joe.
In addition to our high school students, twenty lucky children from our community have won golden tickets giving them an opportunity to be in the show as Wonka squirrels in the Nut Room. We hope you’ll come out to support all the students in this great night of entertainment for the whole family!
