Calvary University Theatre Department presents Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka at the Liberty Chapel from March 10th to March 19th, 2023. The musical is based on Roald Dahl's 1964 book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and was made popular by the 1971 movie starring Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The story follows a group of five children who each find a Golden Ticket and are granted a tour to explore the mysterious chocolate factory owned by the Candy Man himself, Willy Wonka. The children venture into a Candy Dream through fantasmic rooms filled with absurdities from lickable wallpaper to nut-sorting squirrels, and oompa loompas to everlasting gobstoppers. There’s No Knowing Where We’re Going. We invite you to join us on our adventure of Pure Imagination, March 10-19, 2023.

ROALD DAHL’S Willy Wonka is presented through special arrangement with  Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.

Calvary University Theatre Arts

The Calvary Theatre Arts program revolves around telling stories in ways that will engage the culture with a fresh and vibrant perspective!  Our mission is to equip students by building academic, performance-related, technical, and spiritual foundations to enable you to direct theatrical productions and oversee technical and administrative components wherever God might bring you – in front of a congregation in a ministry setting or in front of a professional film crew! By the time you leave Calvary, you’ll be able to teach others how to tell a great story and you’ll have developed into a skilled and disciplined actor who respects their art and their craft. You’ll be ready to further your career through graduate school training or professional acting. You’ll come away knowing that to be called to tell the best of all stories is one of the most compelling of all callings.
