Ashe County Little Theatre Presents Willy Wonka, the Musical

Ashe County Little Theatre Presents Willy Wonka, the Musical

Now here’s a show the entire family will enjoy: Willy Wonka, the Musical! Author Roald Dahl’s iconic tale follows enigmatic candy manufacturer, Willy Wonka, as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever 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 amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory… or suffer the consequences.
