Hope Drama Camp presents “Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka”
4173 Bludau Drive, Warrenton | 7pm or 2pm

Hope Drama Camp presents our 11th annual Summer presentation: Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, the timeless classic story of the world-famous Candy Man and his quest to find a worthy heir. Appropriate for all ages, this classic Broadway musical delivers a heartwarming story of hope, imagination, mischief, and just deserts — but with an interesting twist.

All performances are free to the community, with donations accepted to support CareNet Pregnancy Resource Centers, in lieu of a ticket fee.  After all, if Wonka teaches us anything, it’s that good things come in small packages.
