The Un-Common Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for our Fall Production of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka. The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale. 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 Wonkais a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth.

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.

This timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir coming to chocolate-covered life, will have audiences wishing for their own golden ticket!

Rehearsals are scheduled on Sunday afternoons from 1:00-4:00 PM and Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30-9:00 PM in Mansfield or Foxboro. Not all cast members will be required to be at all rehearsals. A rehearsal schedule will be made once the show is cast. Extra nights may be added as the show nears production week. Cast members are allowed 3 absences only, none the two weeks prior to the show.

The production will take place November 18-20, 2022.

Production Fee: $400  and $350 for each additional family cast member. This will be due at the first rehearsal. The production fees include a show t-shirt, professional pictures for downloading, and entrance for the cast member to the opening night party. Like most everything in the past few year, our expenses have gone up, as such, so have our cast fees. However, we at Un-Common believe that theatre should always be accessible. As such, we do provide scholarships. If this is the one thing keeping your child from participating, please just reach out to the show producers, no questions asked.
