Above: Head to Trottier next Thursday evening to get your tickets to see a kids version of Willy Wonka.

If you’re looking for things to do with young kids over spring break next week, here’s one event to add to your calendar. Next Thursday, Willy Wonka Kids will play on the Trottier stage.

The performance will be by campers signed up for a Skyrise Theater/Southborough Rec camp next week. It culminates in their performance at 5:00 pm on Thursday, April 18th. (According to the script website, expect the play to last about a half hour.) 

Each family is provided two tickets. But additional tickets to the show can be purchased for just $5 each.

The “Kids” 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.  Rec shared:

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka KIDS follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka Factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory—or suffer the consequences.
