Willy Wonka Jr.

Directed by Patricia Webb

Friday & Saturday shows will be at 7:30, Sunday shows will be at 2:00!
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.
