There is still time to catch the final performances of “Willie Wonka,” Roald Dahl’s classic tale of innocence, curiosity and chocolate at Taft High 7-12 in Lincoln City.

The play stars eighth grader Tara Souter as Charlie, the good kid from a poor family who wins one of the coveted Golden Tickets for a tour of Willie Wonka’s fantastical chocolate factory. Accompanied by Grandpa George — played by Director Jennifer Sparks — Charlie embarks upon an amazing adventure through the realm of the mysterious Wonka, ably brought to life by senior Micah Morgan.

And the action is not limited to the stage. At each show, Wonka Bars will be on sale at the concessions stand, with two golden tickets hidden inside for lucky guests to find. One ticket is for a $150 dinner certificate at Salishan and one for a kids prize from Prehistoric.

The play will run through Saturday, April 22, with performances at 7 pm every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for kids aged 12 and under.

And on Friday, April 21, guests can enjoy VIP treatment at a special $10-per-ticket show featuring a silent auction. Doors for the VIP performance will open at 6 pm.

All performances take place at Taft High 7-12, 3780 SE Spyglass Ridge.
