Just imagine…. 15 Oompa Loompas singing and dancing and six tap-dancing squirrels! This

is just part of the fun that the 40 member cast of “Willy Wonka, Jr.” the Musical are having.

Over the last five years, Sunny D has continued to increase the complexity of theater for

our young actors. Sunny D is now embracing all of the “triple threats”… Acting, Singing and

Dancing. This has been done by our regular Sunny D plays like Webber’s “School of Rock”

and Summer Camp performances of Disney’s “The Lion King” or this year’s performances of

the Tony winning Musical, “Newsies”. All of this is possible because we have great

volunteers and patrons. For “Willy Wonka” there are seven adult assistants, as well as a

scene coach. Behind the scenes there are the costume ladies, the set and paint crews and all

the technical help a director could ask for! All this energy and excitement is not possible

without money. We are especially grateful for our Patrons: Joe Cantwell donates all of our

royalties and also donated our Microphone System. Carolyn Dawson donated the dance

floor, mirrors, dance bars and some scholarship for lessons. Nancy and Mark Staley donate

4,000 playbills a year and also donated some much needed technical equipment. We are so

grateful for all donations (My husband loves the brownies donated to concessions).

Thank you! Thank You! Thank You! You are truly the village supporting our children! Don’t miss

“Willy Wonka, Jr.” the Musical which runs from October 26 – November 4, 2018.
