Willy Wonka

Willy Wonka in Cabot, VermontWilly Wonka in Cabot, VermontWilly Wonka comes to Cabot on March 31st!  Join us for a fantastical adventure you won’t want to miss!  Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, based on the wonderful book “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” is full of humor, music, dancing, and fun, with perhaps just a bit of weirdness! Bring your family and join us!

For those unfamiliar with the show, it’s the story of a reclusive candy maker, Willy Wonka, who is seeking an heir to his empire, and places golden tickets for a tour of his secret factory inside 5 candy bars. Charlie Bucket hopes to find one of those tickets, but her hopes dwindle as tickets are found by greedy and spoiled children across the globe. Come to the show to see what happens next!

Cabot Community Theater will be performing this show for one weekend only, so be sure to mark your calendar now!

Friday, March 31 at 7 pm
Two shows Saturday, April 1 at 2 pm matinee & 7 pm
Sunday, April 2 at 2 pm

Performances will be at the Cabot School Performing Arts Center, and tickets are $10 general admission, and $8 for students and seniors. For reservations or more information, call 563-3338.

The last time we did a musical, all performances were sold out, so we recommend making advance reservations to be safe. See you at the theater!

We are always looking for help behind the scenes–if you’d like to help with props, sets, costumes, sound, lights, publicity, or makeup, please send an email to the producer, Karen Mueller-Harder, at karen@praxisworks.org, or call 793-5617. We’re all doing it for the love of it, and we strive for inclusive, affordable, excellent local theater!
