Event Details

The two performances will run back-to-back with a breif intermission. ​Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach are two of Roald Dahl’s most famous and beloved stories and students at West Senior High School are bringing these fantastical characters to life!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlie Bucket and his Grandpa Joe join a small group of contest winners who get to tour the magical and mysterious factory of eccentric candy maker Willy Wonka. Aided by his diminutive Oompa Loompa workers, Wonka has a hidden motivation for the tour, one that he will reveal only after the children in the group show their true colors.

James and the Giant Peach

James'' life is one of fear and deprivation. His parents die in a horrible accident, and his aunts keep him locked in the basement except when it is time to clean the house or chop wood. A strange, wizened man gives James a bag of magic crystals, but James trips and drops them on the ground. They empower a tree to grow a huge peach, which his aunts treat as a tourist attraction, but it also hosts some large insects, worms and spiders who had eaten the crystals. The peach snaps off the tree, rolls over the aunts and makes its way all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Sharks, hailstones and weapons from the Cloud Men do not deter them, in large part due to James' clever stratagems. The crew end up deposited on top of one of New York City's skyscrapers, and they all thrive in their new home, having overcome their fears.
