ACT II Community Theatre – Announces 2022/23 show Season – Willy Wonka Jr

Press Release from ACT II Community Theatre of Albion MI

ACT II Community Theatre is excited to announce their first two shows of the 2022/23 show season. Starting with “Willy Wonka Junior”, our children’s play. We will produce the show with performance dates of July 22 and 23 at 7:00 P.M. and July 24 at 2:00 P.M. All performances will be at the historic Bohm Theatre in Albion. We are currently looking for anyone aged preschool through high school to participate as all characters are children and teens.

“Feel free to contact us at act2albion@gmail.com with questions regarding auditions. Our director who has extensive experience with this show, Lynn Schofield-Dahl, is looking forward to a large turnout. Dahl who is head of Public Services and Deputy Director Librarian at Albion District Library shares the last name of the author of Willy Wonka, but as she said, “I am not related”. Here is a brief summary of “Willy Wonka Junior:”

Based on the classic book by Roald Dahl, Willy Wonka JR tells the story of the famous candy inventor, Willy Wonka, and the chaos that ensues when he decides to open his factory gates to five lucky kids and their parents for a tour. The story follows a young boy named Charlie Bucket and his journey from poverty to winning the ultimate prize, and it is much greater than a lifetime supply of chocolate. Willy Wonka JR touches on the troubles that are brought about when kids are left to be spoiled and bossy, and also shows how you can make beautiful things with a touch of “pure imagination.”

ACT II will be looking for show sponsors and businesses wishing to advertise for these shows. If you are interested, please contact us at act2albion@gmail.com
