Herndon High School’s Summer Grand are recreating Roald Dahl’s classic “Willy Wonka” this weekend at the school.
The show will be presented Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.; with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee. Tickets are $12 for each show. Prior to the Sunday show, there will be a “Chocolate Factory Tour” — for a cost of $3 — that will give children a chance to see what goes on behind the scenes of such a production. One adult per family can accompany their children at no additional charge.
According to the Herndon Drama website:
Join the Summer Grand cast and crew as they present Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, a marvelous musical that will unlock the gates of your imagination — and, perhaps, teach a lesson or two.
Appropriate for all ages, this celebrated classic offers an optional “chocolate factory” tour before Sunday’s performance. Interested families with children ages 3 to 12 should contact Renee Maxwell, [email protected], soonest, as tour space is limited.
The shows will be presented in the auditorium at Herndon High School (700 Bennett St.). For further information, call Rapheal Schklowsky, Herndon High School theater director, at 703-810-2341; or email [email protected].
