Rising Stars Auditions – Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR

November 4, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Rising Stars Auditions Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR in Franklin, TN.

Rising Stars Auditions – Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2023, from 12:30-3:30 pm at the Franklin Recreation Complex, 1120 Hillsboro Rd, Franklin. Ages: 2nd – 8th Graders.

The Rising Stars winter production for 2023-24 will be Roald Dahl’s timeless story of the delicious adventures of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film, in addition to a host of fun new songs, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth. 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.
