Take Yourself to a World Full of Pure Imagination During a Performance of Willy Wonka Jr.

Get ready for Oompa-Loompas, incredible inventions, the great glass elevator, and more— as Elm Street Cultural Arts Village presents Willy Wonka Jr. on November 15th!

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. Whoever 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 likable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather.

Among the other four winners are Veruca Salt, a spoiled rich girl; Augustus Gloop, a gluttonous kid who stuffs his face with sweets; Violet Beauregarde, a champion trophy gum chewer; and Mike Teavee, a kid who spends more time watching TV and playing video games than anything else. Most fascinating is the mysterious Willy Wonka who in turn had a troubled childhood and has a special grand prize at the end for one of the kids. Also, along the tour are Wonka's staff the singing, working Oompa-Loompas.

The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory or suffer the consequences. With songs such as “I’ve Got A Golden Ticket,” “Pure Imagination,” and “Candy Man,” you won’t want to miss this everlasting showstopper!
