Willey Wonka Musical

A local children's theater put on the production of "Willey Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". I have read this book to the boys and we have watched both movie versions (they think that the new version with Johnny Depp is a girl playing Willie Wonka because of his long hair). This is such a fun story and the music is great. Needless to say the boys loved the play. When I asked them what their favorite part was they said, "all of it". It really was a fun play and the children who performed it did a great job. Actually, for being a local children's production I was really impressed with their acting and singing. Even before it was over the boys were asking if we could go again. I found the music online and ordered it so we can learn the songs and sing them. Tom says he wants to learn the songs and be in the play and do the part of "Charlie".
