Then in April, Roald Dahl’s timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to life in this stage adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which features the songs from the classic family film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Roald Dahl’s WILLY WONKA follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding five golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whoever 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: 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. This scrumdidilyumptious musical is guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth.
Willy Wonka – April 2014
In the Summer of 2014, Creative Arts Theater presents a show based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN! This high-flying, splashy musical that tells the story of Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., a teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer – living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But when Frank’s lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl chases Frank to the end…and finds something he never expected.
Catch Me If You Can – July 2014
Coming in October 2014, Can three guys really cover thirty-seven Shakespeare plays in less than two hours? This fast-firing comedy does just that as it parodies all of the Shakespeare plays (plus the sonnets!) with only three performers in two acts. This play is full of energy as the characters run across the stage, with clever use of some interesting costumes and keep you guessing how they will pull off the next of the bard’s plays in only an hour and a half! Directed by Robert K. Blomker II. Creative Arts Theater is proud to present The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) written by the Reduced Shakespeare Company.
