Auditions for ROALD DAHL'S WILLY WONKA, JR at Musical Theatre of Anthem announced for August 12

Musical Theatre of Anthem Casting Call for Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR.
Audition Prep Workshops Available

 Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA) announces auditions for Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. for ages 6-18, all youth are cast.

Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka JR. 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.
