A note about rehearsals: A weekly rehearsal schedule will be emailed. Your young performer(s) will be scheduled for rehearsal based on the scenes that are being practiced. There may be times when your young performer is not needed at rehearsal or is called for only part of a rehearsal. It is extremely important to read the schedule each week to know when you are required at rehearsal. If you have any Wednesday or Sunday conflicts, please note them on the registration form so that we can do our best to work around conflicts. All performers must attend the tech rehearsals on March 3rd and March 4th, the dress rehearsal on March 6th, and the invited dress rehearsal on March 7th. Thank you!
About the Show:
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.
