El Cajon, CA –  Come with us and live in a world of pure imagination! Well, at least for a couple hours! CYT East County presents Willy Wonka, the classic story of a humble boy given the chance of a lifetime. The production features memorable songs such as “Pure Imagination”, “The Candy Man”, “Cheer Up Charlie” and more! Show dates are Nov. 14 – Nov. 23 at Greenfield Middle School.  

Eccentric candy maker, Willy Wonka, has hidden just five golden tickets in his Wonka bars! Whoever finds these tickets will receive a once in a lifetime tour of the most mysterious and amazing candy factory in the world! Join Willy Wonka and the Oompa Loompas as they lead the humble young boy Charlie, the gluttonous Augustus Gloop, gum-cheweing Violet Beauregarde, TV junkie Mike Teevee and the spoiled Veruca Salt through a maze of chocolate rivers, life lessons and laughs. Based on the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, Willy Wonka is a musical “treat” for the whole family!

Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased through the website or by calling the box office. Pre-sale tickets are $15, tickets at the door are $18. Shows are selling out fast, so get your tickets today!
