Congratulations to the cast of
2015 Spring  Musical Production

Willy Wonka Jr

Words & Music by Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley
Adapted for the Stage by Leslie Bricusse & Timothy A. McDonald


Directed by Bonnie Marchesani & Pat Lawrence


Roald Dahl's timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to life in this stage adaptation based on the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  Follow the enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding five golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whoever 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: the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory - or suffer the consequences. Willy Wonka Junior will take you on a fantasy ride into the land of pure imagination!
