Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka follows the enigmatic candy manufacturer as he stages a contest by hiding five 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 and the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory – or suffer the consequences. This scrumdidilyumptious musical is guaranteed to delight everyone's sweet tooth.
The Un-Common Theatre Company is currently in its 33rd season of providing a creative place for children, adolescents and adults to develop life skills through exposure to the professional theatrical experience.
