Willy Wonka Jr. Information Meeting Feb 19!

This May, the EHS Theatre Department will be presenting “Willy Wonka Jr.,” a musical directed by students, for students!

There will be an informational meeting on February 19th in the Black Box, 1:45-2:15 where you will get a chance to meet the creative team, learn about the project and ask any burning questions you have about the audition, the rehearsal process, tech, shows, ANYTHING!

Workshops will be held on March 18th and 19th,

Auditions will be held on March 20th

Rehearsals will begin March 22nd

As a tradition, the student directed musical is a production directed by upperclassmen with a cast of freshman and sophomore students.

This is a no-cut production, meaning if you audition, YOU’RE IN!

All of us here on the Wonka Creative Team have participated in a past student-directed production, and can speak to the importance of working alongside peers in such a close manner. The safe and ever-strengthening learning environment makes for a wonderful community and a crazy fun production!

Please consider auditioning, joining tech or coming out to support the show!

If you have any questions, please email
