CASTING BREAKDOWN:

 Willy Wonka / Candy Man

The sly, charming, eternally youthful star of the show; an eccentric and nimble performer; must have the ability to be filled with boundless energy and be physically light on their feet; has a larger than life persona that can go from charming and comical, to magically mysterious and dark; baritone/tenor voice; principal.

Charlie Bucket 

About ten with big heart and soul. Sweet, smart, hopeful and loving with wonderful innocence and vulnerability. This young performer will be expected to carry lots of responsibility inside of the show.

Grandpa Joe 

Grandpa Joe is the grandfather we all wish we had when we were Charlie’s age. He is caring, patient, sweet, and always reminds Charlie to look on the bright side. He is kind and funny. The role sings a bit, but the singing is secondary to the actor’s solid acting skills.

Mr. Bucket

Seeking an actor with a nice voice and a nurturing presence. Mr. Bucket performs the number “Think Positive” with Charlie. The role may double in the ensemble.

Mrs. Bucket

Seeking an actor with a nice voice and a nurturing presence. Mrs. Bucket sings “Cheer Up, Charlie” with Mr. Bucket and Grandpa Joe. The role may double in the ensemble.

Grandma Josephina

Seeking strong actor with good comic timing. The role will double in the ensemble.

Grandma Georgina

Seeking strong actor with good comic timing. The role will double in the ensemble.

Grandpa George 

Seeking strong actor with good comic timing. The role will double in the ensemble.

Phineous Trout

A reporter who announces the winners of the Golden Ticket contest throughout the show.

Augustus Gloop 

Augustus is the overachieving eater. The performer should be a good mover and comfortable wearing padding. Augustus sings “I Eat More!” along with his mother and Phineous Trout. The song is on the difficult side, but does not need to be sung with a polished pretty voice, in fact, the more character the better.

Mrs. Gloop

Mrs. Gloop is Augustus’ mother who has overindulged her son with food. She accompanies Augustus on the tour of the factory, and sings “I Eat More!”

Mike Teavee

For this adaptation Mike is not just a TV junky. He is also addicted to video games, the Internet and any other mindnumbing technological device. Mike is bratty, loud and obnoxious. He does not understand the word “no.” Mike and Ms. Teavee sing “I See It All On TV.”

Ms. Teavee 

Ms. Teavee is a take on all television moms of the distant past. Think June Cleaver (Leave it to Beaver) or Marion Cunningham (Happy Days) or even Carol Brady (The Brady Bunch). She’s perfectly put together and a bit vacant. She sings “I See It All On TV.”

Violet Beauregarde 

Gum chewer extraordinaire, Violet hails from Snellville, Georgia. Violet stands in stark contrast to Veruca Salt. Veruca is a wealthy refined brat; Violet is more of a bluecollar, middle class brat. She sings “Chew It.”

Mrs. Beauregarde 

Mrs. Beauregard is a teacher of geography and has invested a great deal of hard-earned money on therapy for her gum-chewing daughter, with less than stellar results.

Veruca Salt

Veruca is  wealthy, class-conscious, and completely spoiled. She sings “I Want It Now.”

Mr. Salt

Mr. Salt’s solution to most problems is to buy his way out. He can certainly afford it.

Ensemble Performers

The hard-working backbone of the show, with fun music, fast costume changes, and lots to do. Will play many roles like Oompa-Loompas, Cooks, Squirrels, Machines, and More!

The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is based on C.S. Lewis’ classic work.
