It’s a sweet partnership when Master Arts Theatre and the Van Singel Fine Arts Center team up to co-produce Roald Dahl’s musical comedy, Willy Wonka for the 2017-2018 CHEMICAL BANK Series. The four performances, underwritten by The Van Singel Family Foundation, will be presented at the Van Singel Fine Arts Center November 30th through December 2nd.
This classic family stage delicacy follows world re-known and mysterious candy man, Willy Wonka, who hosts five young Golden Ticket contest winners at his magical candy empire. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder, the show follows the young winners journey through the delicious art of candy making, where four of the children plunge into mischievous escapades. However, little do the five children and their families know that their dreamlike adventure is really a test of character and Willy Wonka is actually seeking an heir to his massive chocolate kingdom.
The Friday, December 1st 7:30 pm performance will have a sign language interpreter for the hearing impaired.
