|Knoxville Children’s Theatre will present “Charlie And the Chocolate Factory,” a live play for children and families, based on the classic novel by Roald Dahl. The play will be performed June 10 through 26, Thursdays and Fridays at 7 PM; Saturdays at 1 PM and 5 PM; Sundays at 3 PM.
Poor Charlie Bucket finds a Golden Ticket in his Wonka Chocolate Bar, sending him and his Grandpa on a magical tour of Willy Wonka’s renowned chocolate factory. One by one, the other children on the tour break the rules, but if Charlie survives the journey, he may find an even greater reward.
The play is directed by recent West High graduate, A. J. Tierney, assisted by Caroline Dyer, a junior at South-Doyle High. Stage management duties are carried out by Kennis Van Dyke, a freshman at L&N STEM Academy. Emma Campbell, a freshman at Pellissippi State, is the staff’s Production Manager.
The show is sponsored by The Comcast Foundation, The Clayton Family Foundation, and Home Federal Bank. Assistance was also provided by Bandit Lites, and Prestige Cleaners.
