Take a tour of a candy factory in this musical, which opens Friday, Nov. 10
What is it like to win a free tour of a candy factory?
Journey Theater is thrilled to provide family-friendly entertainment, featuring a cast of talented local youth to the greater community, with its musical production of Willy Wonka.
Performances start Nov. 10 at Fort Vancouver High School.
Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka 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. Oh, and a lifetime supply of candy, too.
Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats. The fifth winner is a like-able young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour with his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory … or suffer the consequences.
Opening night is Friday at 7 p.m.
Willy Wonka will return Saturday, Nov. 11 for shows at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m, then again the following week with a 7 p.m. show on Friday, Nov. 17, and two shows again on Saturday, Nov. 18.
Tickets are on sale at journeytheater.org or by calling 360-750-8550. Adult tickets are $18. Youth and senior tickets are $15. Tickets for all performances cost $2 more at the door.
Journey is a Jesus-centered theater arts program that exists to grow youth and their families in character and purpose to be difference-makers in their world. Journey Theater has been serving Clark County since 2002.
