2022 Workshops

Winter/Spring: ROALD DAHL’S WILLY WONKA KIDS

For ages 10-17, accepting up to 25 students

PLEASE NOTE: Students may be required to wear masks for rehearsals. There will be no exceptions. COVID protocols (negative test or full vaccination, and masks while indoors) will most likely be enforced for audiences who attend Willy Wonka KIDS performances.

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka KIDS 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, but 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. Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka KIDS is directed by Jerry Lee, and music directed by John Jay Espino.

Tuition: $250 (this includes a materials fee). Full or partial scholarships are available and made possible by generous sponsors like Sonora Area Foundation and Mary Stuart Rogers Foundation.
