Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka


  • Barnstable Comedy Club 3171 Massachusetts 6A Barnstable, MA, 02630 United States (map)

Cape Cod Kids on Broadway features Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka at the Barnstable Comedy Club. The theater group is producing a full-length musical in four short weeks from start to finish with a talented group of teens and youth. The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale. 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. 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. Gwen Bainier is the director of Willy Wonka, Lisa Taylor is the musical director and Jessica Ann McDowell (JAM) is the lighting designer.
