The delicious adventures of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantastical tale. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film, in addition to a host of fun new songs, Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone's sweet tooth. Now in the updated Binder format! 

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. 

Character Breakdown


Willy Wonka / Candy Man
Willy Wonka is an enigmatic character; at once mysterious and mischievous but also charismatic. 

Charlie Bucket
Charlie Bucket is the emotional heart and soul of the musical. 

Grandpa Joe
Grandpa Joe is the grandfather we all wish we had when we were Charlie's age. He is caring, patient, sweet, and always reminds Charlie to look on the bright side. 

Mr. Bucket
Mr. Bucket is a natural nurturer. Mr. Bucket performs the number "Think Positive" with Charlie. 

Mrs. Bucket
Mrs. Bucket is a natural nurturer. Mrs. Bucket sings "Cheer Up, Charlie" with Mr. Bucket and Grandpa Joe. 

Grandpa George
Charlie's three grandparents are mainly non-singing character roles. 

Grandma Georgina
Charlie's three grandparents are mainly non-singing character roles. 

Grandma Josephina
Charlie's three grandparents are mainly non-singing character roles. 

Phineous Trout
Phineous is the reporter who announces the winners of the Golden Ticket contest throughout the show. 

Mrs. Gloop
Mrs. Gloop is Augustus' mother who has overindulged her son with food. She accompanies Augustus on the tour of the factory, and sings "I Eat More!"

Mrs. Beauregard
Mrs. Beauregard is a teacher of geography and has invested a great deal of hard-earned money on therapy for her gum-chewing daughter, with less than stellar results. 

Mr. Salt
Mr. Salt's solution to most problems is to buy his way out. He is upper class, and usually portrayed with a high British accent. 

Violet Beauregarde
Gum chewer extraordinaire, Violet hails from Snellville, Georgia, so it's nice if she has a Southern American accent, but not necessary. 

Mike Teavee
For this adaptation Mike is not just a TV junky. He is also addicted to video games, the Internet and any other mindnumbing technological device. Mike is bratty, loud and obnoxious. He does not understand the word "no." 

James
James is Charlie's friend from school. 

Augustus Gloop
Augustus is the overachieving eater.

Ms. Teavee
Ms. Teavee is a take on all television moms of the distant past. Think June Cleaver (Leave it to Beaver) or Marion Cunningham (Happy Days) or even Carol Brady (The Brady Bunch). She's perfectly put together and a bit vacant. 

Veruca Salt
Veruca is wealthy, class-conscious, and completely spoiled. She is often portrayed with a high British accent.

Matilda
Matilda is also a schoolmate of Charlie's, but she's a bit of bully. 

Mrs. Beauregarde
Mrs. Beauregard is a teacher of geography and has invested a great deal of hard-earned money on therapy for her gum-chewing daughter, with less than stellar results.
