"Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka"
By Leslie Bricusse, Anthony Newley, Tim McDonald
Directed by Douglas Instenes (Music Director Greg Berg)
Willy Wonka is a world-famous and reclusive candy man with a booming business and fabulous fortune, but no heir. To find one, he holds a contest and invites the finalists, five lucky children, to tour his magical, mysterious chocolate factory. "Pure Imagination," "The Candy Man" and most of the songs come from the classic 1971 film "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," plus more musical numbers are included in the stage version.
