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.

*There is a $50 participation fee for all cast members as well as 4 hours of required volunteer time from the family of each participant. If you have any questions about this, please contact our Production Manager Sue at skumpula@bctmn.org.

*There will be a read-thru rehearsal on December 22. Rehearsals will continue Monday-Friday at 6-8pm starting Jan. 3-performances.
