Thatcher Hall to present Roald Dahl's "Willy Wonka"
Grades > ELA-8

This year, Roald Dahl's whimsical world of chocolate and mischief will be brought to life on stage by the students of Thatcher Hall. We will join Charlie Bucket, Grandpa Joe, and the other Golden Ticket finders on their adventure through Willy Wonka’s amazing chocolate factory. We would love to have you as part of our cast for this amazing production. Please read all the information below before signing up for auditions in just a few weeks.

Audition Sign Ups - Feb. 6-17 - All students in grades 3rd-8th are invited to audition. Middle school students need to sign up before they leave for trips. Once students sign up, two things will be emailed to them and to parents. The first will be a short song and monologue to memorize prior to their audition. The second will be a Google Form to fill out with your information and rehearsal conflicts. This will replace the paper audition sheets we have used in the past.  

Auditions - Feb. 21-23, 3:30-5:00 - students will sign up for a 5-minute slot and will only need to be present for his or her audition time. A cast list will be announced by noon on Saturday, February 25.

Rehearsals - Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:00. Middle School students participating in sports are to come to rehearsals after sports wrap up at 4:00. Our first rehearsal will be on Tuesday, February 28. Please let Mrs. Human know on your audition form of any conflicts you have during rehearsals (sports practices, dance class, planned vacations, etc.)

Parent Meeting - We will have a meeting for all parents at 5:00 on Tuesday, February 28. Please plan to have at least one parent per child present at this meeting. In order for this show to be the best it can be, we are going to need a lot of parent volunteers.

Tech Week - April 24-27, 3:30-6:00. Students will need to attend every night that week to ensure that we are comfortable with our costumes, set, lights, and sound.

Show Dates - Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29 in the Zelle Black Box Theater. We will have one evening show on Friday and two shows (one matinee and one evening) on Saturday. We will also have school shows on Monday, May 1 during the school day.  Please make sure that your schedules allow for students to be present at all shows and tech week rehearsals before signing up to audition. We will have a cast party between shows on Saturday. More information about that will come at a later date.
