Scrumdiddlyumptious Willy Wonka Jr. Draws Crowds
January 15, 2014
Not snow, a 12 day break or even the polar vortex could deter Martin Meylin's Willy Wonka Jr. musical from a fantastic run from January 9-11, 2014. Mrs. D' Agostino led the talented cast and crew to prove "the show must go on" despite many missed and shortened rehearsals.
All three nights drew large crowds and Friday's performance was even attended by L-S musical alumni James Wolpert. He decided to come after he was invited by cast members during his visit to Martin Meylin.
The cast, including leads Brendan Massar (Willy Wonka), Steven Greenwood (Charlie) and Robert Diehl (Grandpa Joe), gave vibrant performances and the sets were imaginative and fun. The candy boat and Violet (Maddie Ciliento) Beauregarde's blueberry suit were standouts.
It was hard not to leave the PAC without a smile and a song stuck in your head. Thanks for giving us a great show!
