Live Theatre: Willy WonkaThe Grand 165 Main Street, Ellsworth, ME
Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka follows enigmatic candy manufacturer, Willy Wonka, as he stages a contest by hiding 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 likable 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. On the Stanley Subaru Stage, Sponsored by First National Bank, Directed by Ashley Terwilliger, Music Director – David Sheehy.
