Willy Wonka, Jr.' Production Adds Autism/Special Needs Friendly Performance
ArtsNashoba's Willy Wonka, Junior will add an Autism/Special Needs friendly performance March 26.
Roald Dahl's magical story of the eccentric candy maker who, deciding to retire, goes in search of his replacement by holding a contest. Five Golden tickets are hidden amongst millions of Wonka Bars - the five winners come from distant corners of the world to tour the mysterious Wonka Chocolate Factory and claim their lifetime supply of chocolate - and the fun ensues!
Twenty cast members from five surrounding towns are hard at work preparing for opening night - which comes a day early this year! On March 26 at 6 p.m. they will present an Autism/Special Needs friendly performance for guests, educators and their families throughout the region.
This performance is made possible by generous grants from Local Arts Councils of Ayer, Dunstable, Groton, Littleton, Pepperell, Shirley, and Townsend. Visit www.artsnashoba.org for more info. Willy Wonka, Junior is being performed at the Richardson Mees Performing Arts Center, at Lawrence Academy with additional performances on Friday, March 27, 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 28, 3 and 7 p.m. Tickets $10 adults, $8 for seniors and students available online, from cast members and at the door.
