Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka KIDS follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory — or suffer the consequences.

The dragon is back in town! Well… not really. That’s the story a ragtag band of innkeepers makes up, desperate to draw questing heroes to the struggling Dancing Dragon Inn. Soon the inn is full of unexpected guests, from an army of princesses out to prove their bravery, to a group of overwhelmed heroes trying to hold onto their fame. But what happens if they all discover the innkeepers’ dragon story is made up? Could there be more than one way to save the day? An epic folk-rock score brings magic to this funny, heartfelt fantasy musical.
THE MISSION of the Theatre Arts Academy at the Lincoln Community Playhouse is to provide production-based theatre education opportunities for children ages 9-13 to grow and develop as performers. Therefore, each child who signs up for the class will participate as a performer in the production.
Auditions take place at the end of the first day of class in order to assign roles, but every child who signs up for the class will be cast in the show in a performance capacity, whether that is a solo singing/speaking role or member of the chorus. Any student with an interest in theatre is eligible for this program. We find that the varying degrees of talent is a plus for everyone involved, since much of our process is built on teaching the tools they need for a successful production.
The academies are set up so that the participants receive instruction in acting, movement, singing, and other forms appropriate for the show that has been selected. Participants rehearse with the director, music director, and choreographer.
SCHOLARSHIPS are available and awarded to qualifying students. Scholarship applications are due three weeks prior to the applied camp. You can download the form at the link below. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
