You don’t need a golden ticket for this show!

Oompa Loompa doompety doo, I’ve got a perfect date night for you.

Ooompa loompa doompety dee, if you are wise you will come and you’ll see!

What do you get when you reserve your seats? Singing, dancing and theatrical treats.

What would you do, if you stayed home all alone, watch television and play on your phone?

I don’t like the sound of it.

Oompa loompa doompety da, if you’re not greedy we will go far.

You will live in happiness, too, like the NLT cast and crew do.

Natchez Little Theatre is proud to present Roald Dahl’s “Willy Wonka Jr.,” directed by Devin Klugh and musically directed by Terrence Robinson.

The musical features many of the songs from the 1971 film featuring Gene Wilder and a few more you may not know.

“Willy Wonka Jr.” is the showcase production of the Natchez Little Theatre’s Summer Youth Workshop. Come see our amazing area youth bring their talents to the stage in both song and dance.

There is no need to purchase a ton of Wonka bars for golden tickets. You can reserve yours and pay for them at the door or online. Join the fun as Charlie and Grandpa Joe join Augustus, Veruca, Violet, Mike and their parents as they tour the imaginative and innovative world that is Willy Wonka’s mysterious Chocolate Factory.

Try not to sing along with the Oompa Loompas as they teach life lessons at every twist and turn of the tour.

This scrumdiddlyumptious Willy Wonka Jr. production stars Joe Simmons as Willy Wonka & Quin Branton as Charlie Bucket.
