I alerted you a few weeks ago that Neary kids will be bringing quirky musical fun to town. The time is almost upon us. Southborough students will be performing Willy Wonka Jr. this Friday through Sunday. 

Tickets are sold as assigned seats. So, attendees are encouraged to reserve seats in advance.

The Skyrise Children’s Theater production will be put on by 4th & 5th graders, mostly from Neary School.* As in past years, performers were split into two casts, each putting on two shows.

The Jr. script is based on the original movie musical classic starring Gene Wilder, which was based on the Roal Dahl children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You can look forward to singing and dancing “Oompa Loompas”, an earnest Charlie and the famously odd candy man, Willy Wonka. 

The performances run Friday, February 9 – Sunday, February 11 in the Trottier Middle School auditorium. Ticket prices range from $9 for standard seats for children to $17 for premium rows.

Wednesday Cast**

  • February 9th @ 7:00 pm
  • February 10th @ 2:00 pm

Friday Cast**

  • February 10th @ 7:00 pm
  • February 11th @ 2:00 pm

*The Neary drama program is a special after-school offering through Southborough Recreation. It is geared to Neary students, but open to any 4th & 5th grade residents.
