Roald Dahl's
Willy Wonka JR

(Children's musical), Rated G

Adapted for the stage by Leslie Bricusse,
Timothy Allen McDonald, Anthony Newley

Based on the book, "Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory" by Roald Dahl

Directed by Roxann Wheeler

Produced by Jen Blalock

Musical Direction by Dora Bullock

Sponsored by Coastal Children's Clinic

Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka JR. follows the 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, but the fifth is a likable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory – or suffer the consequences.

This production marks 10 years of CCC 
sponsoring our children’s show.  The first show they sponsored was Willy Wonka, Jr. so we have come full circle! Thank you, Coastal Children’s Clinic for 
your support! 



Walk-In Bathtub is New Bern’s first and only (that we know of…) improv group. Established at Live at City Laundry, Walk-In Bathtub has grown and expanded into one of New Bern’s most cherished treasures. (At least that is what we tell our performers…)

Now in their new home at New Bern Civic Theatre, the
improv group hopes to bring the community more chances at laughter and fun. As well as, provide an avenue for
off-the-beaten-path theatre ventures like original sketches and plays from local artists, full length plays not seen often in the area, Improv and comedy festivals, and more.

Walk-In Bathtub Improv
July Show!

Saturday, July 25th @ 7:30pm

Using your suggestions, Walk-In Bathtub will create ridiculous riffs, wacky worlds and silly situations (alliteration may vary). Similar to the games played by the show "Whose line is it anyway?", Walk-In Bathtub promises a night you won't be able to forget ... no matter how hard you try.

Beer and wine will be available for purchase.
