Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Sunday, June 18 @ 10pm Rackham Stage
The world is astounded when Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder), for years a recluse in his candy factory, announces that five lucky people will be given a tour of the factory and one will win a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate. Charlie, along with four other obnoxious children, go on a whirlwind tour of Willy’s incredible, edible realm of milk chocolate waterfalls, elfish Oompa-Loompas and industrial-sized sugar-coated creations. Along the way, mild disasters befall the group, but can Charlie beat the odds and grab the brass ring? Adapted from the classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.
