Superior Heights OnStage is ready to sweeten life in the community when they perform the musical Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory based on Roald Dahl’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory March 4-7th, 2020.
After last year’s successful production of Mamma Mia!’ director Anthony Aceti is excited to present this year’s musical again at the Sault Community Theatre: “We’ve got a really good cast who’ve been working hard to bring Willy Wonka’s world of pure imagination to life. It’s going to be a great show, with a talented ensemble of elementary and high school students.”
The cast includes Jaden Scornaiencki, a grade 8 student at Boreal, who will be playing Charlie Bucket, Superior Heights C&VS’s own Silas Lucente who will be playing Willy Wonka, not to mention a strong supporting cast and a large group of Oompa-Loompas.
The musical tells the story of a boy named Charlie Bucket who comes from a poor family and is one of five winners of a golden ticket that he finds inside a chocolate bar. The ticket is the opportunity to take a tour of Willy Wonka’s famous chocolate factory, and that is where Charlie’s adventure begins.
Popular songs from the show include: Pure Imagination, Candy Man, and Oompa Loompa (Doopity Doo).
The family-friendly production of Dahl’s classic book, turned movie, turned Broadway musical, promises to be an entertaining and fun night out. The cast urge you not to miss the golden opportunity to see the show, as tickets almost sold out for some shows last year.
Tickets are $24 for adults and seniors, and $9 for students and children through the Station Mall Box Office (the box office fee is included in the price). They can also be purchased at the door on show nights when doors open at 6:30pm. Curtain is at 7:00p.m. March 4-7. Seating is on a first come first served basis.
