Theatre Preview: Stage 1 Children's Theatre presents Willy Wonka Jr.
The search for a Golden Ticket is on! In this fun-filled, stage musical based on Roald Dahl's beloved children's novel, a sweet-natured boy named Charlie Bucket played by Andrew Apy and four other Golden Ticket winners get the tour of a lifetime in a mysterious candy-maker's fantastical factory.
Willy Wonka (Mario Rappa) and his band of Oompa Loompas lead Charlie, the spoiled-rotten Veruca Salt (Brittany Martinek), gluttonous Augustina Gloop (Aimee Coustier), gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde (Emily Kowalski), and television junkie Mike Teavee (Jacob Rosen) through a labyrinth of lemon drops, life lessons, and giggles galore featuring many memorable songs including "The Candy Man," "I Want It Now!" and "Pure Imagination."
Stage 1 Children's Theatre production of Willy Wonka is a scrumptious musical theater treat for the entire family. Recommended for ages five and up.
