Rising Stars present Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR.

February 24 @ 2:00 pm - February 25 @ 7:00 pm

Rising Stars Willy Wonka Jr. show in Franklin at the Williamson County Performing Arts Center at Academy Park.

WCPR Children’s Theatre’s Rising Stars (grades 2nd – 8th grade) present Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. 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. The musical 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.
