You’ve Got a Golden Ticket!

You’ve Got a Golden Ticket!

From: http://www.artscouncilofwhitelake.org

Enter a world of pure imagination this summer as the Nuveen Youth Theatre presents Willy Wonka Jr., the musical. Charlie Bucket's adventures in the wondrous Wonka chocolate factory will come to life on the Howmet Playhouse stage June 16, 17, and 18 at 7:30 p.m. each evening.

Choosing a cast was no easy task for director Alice Gambel after an astounding 113 students from Muskegon and Oceana counties turned out for the spring auditions. Envisioning a show full of unexpected moments and extraordinary imagery allowed her to stretch the cast to nearly 50 students by incorporating dancers as "living" scenery and props. Add purple top-hat wearing Willy Wonka, a troop of singing Oompa Loompas, a girl named Charlie, and this will be a show you won't want to miss.
