Frostburg State University Theatre will present the children’s theatre production “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” based on the book by Roald Dahl and dramatized by Richard R. George, on Saturday, April 22, and Sunday, April 23, at 2 p.m. in the Drama Theatre of the FSU Performing Arts Center.
When five kids strike luck and find a golden ticket in their Wonka chocolate bars, the mysterious chocolate maker, Willy Wonka, invites them on a private tour of his factory to compete for a grand prize. This is a dream come true for the impoverished Charlie Bucket, the boy lucky enough to find the final ticket. Young Charlie is accompanied by fellow ticket winners, gluttonous Augustus Gloop, the competitive Violet Beauregarde, the wealthy Veruca Salt and bratty Mike Teavee. With the children placed in tempting situations and the singing and dancing of the Oompa-Loompas, Willy Wonka’s tour becomes an adventure attracting to all chocolate lovers.
Reservations are not needed. All tickets to “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” are $2 and can be purchased at the door on the day of the performance. For more information, please call the University Theatre Box Office at (301) 687-7462.
