Event Details

Follow the instructions below and make sure to register your child by January 7th to receive important production information. If we do not have registration and payment, your child will not be allowed to audition on January 12th.

Enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka 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 likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather.

The goal is to rehearse and perform in-person, but if the cast needs to quarantine for any amount of time, we will hold virtual rehearsals during the quarantine time period. If we get to the performances and are not allowed to have an audience, we will record/live stream the show for the community.
