February 11, 2020 -  Willy Wonka is back at it again – searching for the perfect future chocolatier in this delicious, delightful musical. This revised 2004 version blends Roald Dahl’s original story, music from the 1971 movie (by Anthony Newly), and new music and an updated script (by Leslie Bricusse and Timothy Allen McDonald). The result is a is a fanciful romp full of humor, mishaps, and the hope that comes from one honest child. What will the Oompa Loompa’s do next? Only the audience will know! Reserved seat tickets may be purchased in advance ($12 adults, $7 students/seniors) through or at the door ($15 adults, $10 students/seniors). All Thursday night tickets are at the Student/Senior rate. Advance tickets may also be purchased from the Glencoe bookkeeper during business hours. This show is appropriate for all audiences.

In Glencoe’s version, the show setting is within a tour of the Wonka Factory – it is a play within a play. Dressed in lab coats and berets, the Oompa Loompas are the scientific geniuses who help Willy Wonka create perfection. During intermission, the Oompa Loompas will interact with younger audience members, leading games and activities at various stations in hopes of finding future Oompa Loompas. This immersive experience will engage audiences in a different way from a traditional theatre performance.
