Local residents have one more chance to see the sweetest show in town, WILLY WONKA. STARS Theater Company will present the final performance of Roald Dahl's world-famous candy man at 3pm this Sunday at Legacy Church of Christ, 8801 Mid Cities Blvd in North Richland Hills.
The musical production is adapted from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder. The enchanting score includes songs such as “Pure Imagination”, Golden Age of Chocolate, and -of course- “The Candy Man”. The famous candy maker, Willy Wonka, has hidden five golden tickets in candy bars all over the world and the winners will receive a lifetime supply of chocolate. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats: the fifth is a likeable young boy named Charlie Bucket. The children must learn to follow factory rules... or suffer the consequences.
