Willy Wonka Jr and Kids versions of this popular musical are based on the Roald Dahl book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Willy Wonka, owner of a mysterious chocolate factory invites the audience to join him in a work of "pure imagination" as he searches for just the right child to take over his factory so that he can retire. He creates a contest to test five lucky "Golden Ticket" winners to see if they pass muster. The Golden Ticket winners are a variety of characters from Charlie Bucket, only son of an extremely poor but honest family, and his Grandpa Joe who used to work at the factory, to a glutton, a brat, a TV/internet junkie, and a gum chewer. The twists and turns of the tour, and the wonderfully catchy tunes keep the audience on their toes as they are taken on a magical journey.
