Willy Wonka TYA/ Stages Children's Theatre


FRIDAY, JULY 19 at 7 P.M.


SUNDAY, JULY 21 at 2 P.M.

Stages Theatre is back, this time with a ride through a land of pure imagination! Join Charlie Bucket and the other Golden Ticket holders as they make their way through the enigmatic Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory.

“Willy Wonka is filled with big dreams and a generous sprinkle of candy, which just so happens to be the ingredient for an excellent summer,” says director Nikki Swoboda. “Charlie’s big heart and open eyes bring us on a fantastical journey from nothing to everything, and all kinds of wild adventures in between.”

This enchanting musical adaptation features memorable songs from the 1971 film and is a sweet treat for the whole family!

Music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley
Adapted for the stage by Leslie Bricusse and Timothy Allen McDonald
Based on the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Directed & Choreographed by Nikki Swoboda
