AGE RESTRICTIONS: ROALD DAHL’S WILLY WONKA is a musical theater adaptation of the beloved Roald Dahl book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It includes colorful, over-the-top characters, a zany storyline, and upbeat songs (many of them familiar from the film adaptations of the same book). It is a delightful show, but does include some darker themes at moments (poverty and greed for example), as well as some depictions of excessively bratty behavior from several of the characters. This show is also a full-length musical performance, with an estimated run time of approximately two hours. STAGES recommends this production is best suited for audience members ages 8 and above. Please use discretion when purchasing tickets for younger audience members and remember that, as a courtesy to our student performers and fellow audience members, it is STAGES’ policy to not admit infants, toddlers or young children ages 4 and under into any mainstage performance.
TICKET CHECK-IN: There will be NO paper tickets issued for this performance. Pre-paid tickets will be held in the form of a will call list. You and all of your party members will need to check in with this list at the box office table (opens one hour prior to performance start time).

“Inclusion, confidence, empathy, support. STAGES teaches life long lessons that go far beyond any stage. There is NO youth theater experience like it.”
“My time at STAGES gave me a sense of belonging, and presented an entry point for something that I found myself so passionate about. These experiences helped to shape my love of the arts and appreciate the impact that the performing, and later visual, arts could have on my life.”
