There will be a sensory friendly show on Sunday July 9 at 2 pm, sponsored in part by Washington County Mental Health Services and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont. Accommodations at this show include reduced intensity of lighting effects and sounds, family “pod” seating, an outdoor “take a break” tent, and a reduced ticket price.
Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka 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: 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. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder and new songs by Leslie Bricusse (Jekyll & Hyde, Doctor Dolittle) and Anthony Newley, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka is a musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth.
