• Bookmarks: 140


Willy Wonka is a family friendly show sure to delight kids of all ages. Based on Roald Dahl’s timeless story of world famous candy manufacturer Willy Wonka, we witness his search for an heir to his vast chocolate empire. The charismatic Wonka devises a plan to hold a contest wherein the lucky golden ticket finders are granted a tour of the mysterious chocolate factory. Among the characters are Charlie Bucket, who lives in poverty with his mother and four grandparents. We also encounter the gluttonous Augustus Gloop, the overindulged Veruca Salt, the sassy Violet Beauregarde and the electronically distracted Mike Teavea as well as the strange creatures that inhabit the factory.

Join us for this inaugural KMS/KHS production in the newly renovated Kohler Memorial Theater. Performances run Thursday-Saturday, February 20-22 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, February 23rd at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are now available in the main office or they can be purchased at the door before each performance.
