Directed by Allison Chicorel

Music Direction by Brendan Fox

Music and Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley

Adapted for the Stage by Leslie Bricusse and Timothy Allen McDonald

Based Roald Dahl’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The New Theatre on Main in partnership with First Bank Financial Center and Mann Finishing, bring to you this holiday season Roald Dahls Willy Wonka. In memory of Gene Wilder, NTOM pays tribute to the late actor whose ingenious talent and creativity made this story come to life. Mr. Wilder was an accomplished stage actor as well as a screenwriter, novelist and director. His works will be cherished in the arts community forever…

Come get a taste of the delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on her visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory when this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale, Willy Wonka lights up the stage at The New Theatre on Main. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder and new songs by Leslie Bricusse (Jekyll & Hyde, Doctor Dolittle) and Anthony Newley, Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth.

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka follows enigmatic candy manufacturer, Willy Wonka, as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats: the fifth is a likeable young girl named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of her equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory… or suffer the consequences.

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka will take you on a fantasy ride into the land of pure imagination! But don’t wait…tickets are selling fast already so order yours before it’s too late!

The New Theatre on Main competing for “Best Theatre Group” on the 2016 Milwaukee A-List! Voting goes through November 20th!

The NEW Theatre on Main (NTOM) has once again been nominated in the “Best Theatre Group” category in its first year competing since 2013. NTOM did not compete in 2014 due to the build-out of its new venue in the Brown Street Market Place. The contest took a break in 2015 and has been renamed for the 2016 competition as the Milwaukee A-List. The NEW Theatre on Main is excited to once again be taking part in this widely recognized and highly respected contest.

“No theatre had ever won this title two years in a row, and we were so thrilled to be the first in 2012 and 2013,” exclaimed Kimm Mann, Managing Director of Theatre on Main. “We would be honored to hold the title once again in 2016 and we are asking all of Oconomowoc to vote for NTOM by November 20th. We would love to bring the award home to our new venue, and the citizens of Oconomowoc and the surrounding communities have the power to make it happen. It would be such an honor.”

Let Your Words Be A Lasting Legacy!

As we reflect back on 2015, we have so much to be thankful for! We finished the building of The NEW Theatre on Main and were able to produce our first show there in April, opening with a successful production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. We went on to put five more amazing shows on our stage over just seven months, including Disney’s Alladin JR; Psych; I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change; Nunsense and Bing Crosby: Christmas On The Air.
We welcomed many new faces to the theater, both onstage and off, including our newly appointed Artistic Director, Allison Chicorel. We look forward to working with Allison to continue our mission of bringing you the highest quality live theater productions in southeast Wisconsin along with opportunities to see budding performers, debut stagings of new playwrights, local authors, cabaret performances, and community events. We also formed new partnerships to bring additional musical theater and performance classes to The NEW Theatre on Main.
And none of this would have been possible without your support! Whether you contributed to our Help Build The Dream campaign, sponsored a show, purchased a tile for display on our Living Legacy Donor Wall, became a season ticket subscriber, attended a production, volunteered your time/talent or spread the word to others – we thank you! With the close of 2015 behind us, we look to the year ahead and ask for your continued support so we can bring you the entertainment you have come accustomed to, and the opportunities for children and others in our communities to display their talents, learn, grow and thrive!
Your tax-deductible gift of just $100 will give you the opportunity to have your name in lights on our Lasting Legacy Donor Wall! Your tile will be displayed along side other supporters of the arts forever!
