PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- After months of honing lines, song and dance routines, the Peekskill Middle School Drama Club’s production of “Willy Wonka Junior” held two performances Feb. 5 and 6.
Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka is a musical play that combines elements of both Roald Dahl's book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and of the 1971 movie "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" with newly created material. The play has several versions: the original version which premiered in 2004, the Junior version, the Kids version, and the Theatre for Young Audiences version.
About 60 students, cast members and stage crew, contributed to the local performance under musical direction of Cynthia Reynolds.
