Willy Wonka entertains audience

The theatre production of Willy Wonka last week had audience members laughing throughout as elementary and junior high actors joined the high school cast and crew to put on a memorable performance.

“Words can’t describe how amazing it felt to play Willy Wonka,” senior Jernon Hawley. “It was a great experience.”

Laughter and applause filled the auditorium, which was nearly a full house despite the cold weather. Saturday was a repeat, with another nearly-full house and many repeat audience members despite the wet weather.
