EMMETSBURG - The chocolate factory is overrun with kids in Willy Wonka KIDS, the latest offering at The Dinges-VanOosbree Performance Center, Emmetsburg Main Street Community Theatre, 19th Street between Lake and Palmer streets.
Willie Wonka has a chocolate factory, and he's hidden five golden tickets in his candy bars. Five lucky kids will get to tour his factory. He wants a nice kid to win the series of tests he has planned, with a lifetime supply of chocolate at stake - and more. It's all about how to be a good parent, said director Jackie VanOosbree.
Keagan Barrett, Curlew, left, plays Willy Wonka, and Chloe Garman, Whittemore, plays Charlie Bucket. The show has a cast of 57.
Show times are 1 p.m. today, 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 1 p.m. Saturday and June 12. The box office opens one hour before curtain; no reserved seating. Tickets are $5.
