Kanawha Players presents – Willy Wonka Jr.

Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka JR. is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone's sweet tooth. Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka JR. 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 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. We are thrilled to announce our Exceptional Stars production of Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka Junior the Musical. Performances will take place on March 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2017 at the Civic Center's Little Theatre. We would like to bring the theatre experience to special needs children of all ages with all abilities. Audition dates to follow on our Facebook events page. We are also reaching out to the community as well as to the parents of our Exceptional Stars for help in many areas including but not limited to: theater mentors for each child, sponsors, professionals who have experience with exceptional individuals or anybody who would like to be a part of this exciting project. We believe that theater should be an experience had by all and this is a great way to bring our time and talents to others.
