CYT Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka at the Bing

Roald Dahl's timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to life in this stage adaptation of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,' which features the songs from the classic family film 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.'

Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka, featuring a memorable score by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley, follows candy manufacturer Willy Wonka 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: the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket who takes the tour in the company of his equally good-natured grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory--or suffer the consequences.

Performances are Friday, February 21, 7pm; Saturday, February 22 at 3pm & 7pm; Friday, February 28, 7pm; Saturday, March 1 at 3pm & 7pm; and Sunday, March 2pm.
