Willy Wonka - Ignite Theatre 2024

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka

Your golden ticket awaits for Ignite Theatre’s presentation of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, where pure imagination will unfold before your eyes. This timeless tale of the world famous candy man and his quest to find an heir comes to chocolate-covered life, while heralding the themes of humility, resting in contentment rather than pining for more [greediness, gluttony, pride], an others-first attitude, plus a deep appreciation of family. All Sweet values to behold!

Come watch this delectable Broadway musical unwrap on stage, May 22nd to 25th, 2024, at the Hub International Theatre, at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.
