Event Navigation

It’s a delicious adventure at the Marion Palace Theatre as Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory bubbles to life on stage! This captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale features enchanting and memorable songs, dancing Oompa Loompas, and a talented cast of local youth led by Director Kristi Wink. WILLY WONKA, JR. is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth.

The well known tale stars Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. The winning children earn 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 with the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory – or suffer the consequences.

Adding to the fun for this production will be a Willy Wonka Candy Shoppe and a special meet and greet with the cast including lunch before the show on Sunday, October 8 (separate ticket required).

Reserved Seating $18 adults, $12 children age 12 & younger.
