Auditions: To schedule an audition appointment, please email Producer, Crissi Allen at [email protected] An audition form/packet will be emailed to you and this must be filled out before attending auditions. This is not a walk-in audition – you must have an appointment with us. Walk-ins are not guaranteed a spot since we will need to close it at 50.

Encompassing drama, music and movement, this fun drama camp will focus on developing the ability to communicate through the powerful and multifaceted tool of theater. We accept beginning, experienced and aspiring actors who desire to be in a musical stage production and seek to focus on developing their acting, dancing, and singing skills.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in every aspect of production; from set design/construction to costumes to makeup and hair to choreography. In this way, we hope to inspire students to become effective communicators using various media, there is MUCH more to shows than who is on stage!

Synopsis of Production

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. 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, but 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.
