Clarke MS Drama Club presents ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’


The W.T. Clarke Middle School Drama Club recently performed “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” a musical based on the Roald Dahl classic.

Enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka holds a contest for five individuals to tour the Wonka factory and receive a lifetime supply of candy if they find a golden ticket in his delicious candy bars. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats. Charlie Bucket, the fifth child, is a likeable young boy who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory or suffer the consequences.

Under the direction of faculty members Patricia Hartman and Katie Pienkos, the cast and crew received a standing ovation for their scrumptious performance.
