Clifford School and San Carlos Children's Theater present Willy Wonka Junior. This delightful musical will charm audiences of all ages. It is the story of the world famous candyman, Willy Wonka, who holds a contest in the (secret) hopes of finding an heir to his chocolate empire, and of Charlie, the little boy with a big heart who becomes his heir. Wonka places five golden tickets into bars of chocolate and the whole world joins the quest to find a golden ticket. The winners are to tour Wonka’s chocolate factory and win a life-time supply of chocolate. Young Charlie Bucket, who comes from a very poor, but very loving family finds one of the tickets and is selected to tour the factory. However, Charlie isn’t the only winner, and then Wonka leads the tour, watching and waiting to see which child will prove to be the most worthy. As the true character of each child becomes clear, the audience can be in no doubt that Charlie, the poorest of the children, has the purest heart.
