Alexandria Area Arts Association to present WILLY WONKA

The Alexandria Area Arts Association (AAAA) will present Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka September 20-22 and 27-29 at the AAAA Theatre in downtown Alexandria.

It will be performed September 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. and September 22 and 29 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for students and seniors (60+) and $10 for kids 10 or younger.

Willy Wonka is based on Dahl’s best-selling book, Charlie and Chocolate Factory, as well as the 1971 MGM film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder. It features many of the songs from the movie, including Pure Imagination, I’ve Got a Golden Ticket, I Want it Now, and the songs of the Oompa Loompas.

After closing his factory for years, Willy Wonka decides to open his factory to five lucky children from around the globe. Wonka leads the children through his factory, a labyrinth of candy drops, life lessons and giggles galore.

Tickets can be purchased at the AAAA Box Office at (320) 762-8300.

Willy Wonka is sponsored by The Aagard Group, LLC and XS Consulting of Alexandria. Additional support is provided by The Sugar Shack of Alexandria.
