Pure Imaginations - A Collective Effort

For more information go to We'd love to see you at the theatre!

I've seen both renditions of the Willy Wonka films.  They're a fun ride through the fantastical; and there's no doubt one needs a good imagination to enjoy the tale; hence, my not being able to wrap my own imagination around this being a stage production.  I mean there's a chocolate river and the girl who blows up like a blueberry and a lot of scenes that require not only pure imagination but a great deal of thoughtful creativity.  And, they did it!

With the collective and wonderful imaginations of John Cramer, (Director), Sallie Burkard, (Costume Designer), Michael Talaska, (Scenic Designer/Master Carpenter/Properties Designer), Aaron Schmidt, (Lighting/Sound Designer), Anthony Mackie, (Wig Master), David Bonofiglio, (Music Director), Katie Danner, (Stage Manager) and the entire run crew and cast - it's being done and done well at the Waukesha Civic Theatre.  Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka is running one more weekend, August 12-14, 2011.  It's an enjoyable production;one you and your family will love.
