Fabrefaction Theatre Conservatory (“FTC”) finishes its fourth season with Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, a music-filled journey based on Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971). Presented in association with FTC’s new conservatory model, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka the Musical runs from April 24th through May 11th with an Opening Night performance on Friday, April 24th at 8pm.
Roald Dahl’s story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to life in this musical adaptation. With all the iconic songs from the Oscar-nominated film and a new score, this musical is sure to turn your preconceived notions of this iconic story upside down as our diverse cast brings new life and vitality to this timeless tale. Director Christina Hoff has enlisted Craig Waldrip, 2013’s Suzi Bass Award Winner for Best Leading Actor in a Musical, to take on title role of Wonka and to lead us on a journey of “Pure Imagination!”
Sharing the stage with Waldrip and the other members of our professional cast are 39 students who have joined FTC under a brand-new conservatory model. The new model is designed to offer premiere training in theatre arts that encourages students to flourish in a professional environment.
“Willy Wonka is the perfect debut for Fabrefaction Theatre Conservatory’s revolutionary, new producing model,” says Director Christina Hoff. “Through intensely collaborative work, we are creating the next generation of artists and arts advocates as we put together our most imaginative production to date.”
