2024 Show

May 11–12 & May 18–19, 2024
Gray-New Gloucester High School
Gray, Maine

Cumberland County Children's Theatre (CCCT) will transport audience members to a “world of pure imagination” with their production of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka Jr., a musical based on Roald Dahl’s timeless children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.


In Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka Jr., a world-famous reclusive candy man named Willy Wonka offers the tour of a lifetime through his secret chocolate factory to five children who find a golden ticket in one of his world-famous candy bars. One ticket-holder will also win a lifetime supply of chocolate. The children encounter marvelous sights and tastes along the way, including giant nut-selecting squirrels, fizzy lifting drinks, Everlasting Gobstoppers, and a chocolate river. But each stop proves to be a test, as only one can go on to win the Wonka prize.


CCCT's production will include beloved songs “The Candy Man”, “I Want It Now!”, and “Pure Imagination”, from the classic 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
