A delightful Broadway musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book, “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory” brings to life the whimsical and magical world of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Join Charlie Bucket, a young boy from a poor family, who wins a golden ticket to tour Willy Wonka’s mysterious and enchanting chocolate factory. Alongside four other lucky children and their guardians, Charlie embarks on a fantastical journey through the factory’s extraordinary rooms and encounters its eccentric owner, Willy Wonka himself. The Broadway adaptation features vibrant sets and costumes that capture the imaginative essence of Dahl’s original tale. From the chocolate waterfall to the nut-sorting room, each scene is filled with wonder and excitement. The musical’s catchy songs, including favorites like “Pure Imagination” and “The Candy Man,” add to the magic of the experience. At its heart, “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory” celebrates the power of imagination, the importance of family, and the joy of indulging in life’s sweetest pleasures. With its blend of humor, fantasy, and heartwarming moments, the musical enchants audiences of all ages, making it a truly scrumptious theatrical experience.

Schedule Specifics

Updates are sent via email at the beginning of each week. You can also check the online Rehearsal Calendar (under the “Rehearsal Calendar” tab).

Each actor can expect to spend approximately 3 to 10 hours in rehearsal each week. They will learn dancing and vocals for chorus numbers, as well as scene blocking and character development. Rehearsals are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:00 – 7:00 PM, and a three-hour block on Saturdays, either 10 AM – 1 PM or 3 – 6 PM, depending on your cast assignment. Specialty dancers and leads may have additional Friday and Saturday rehearsals. Actors are expected to attend all scheduled rehearsals.

Please pick your child up on time after rehearsal. Actors should only be at KCMT (rehearsals and performances) only when they are scheduled. We are not equipped to watch children who are not actively involved in rehearsals/performances.

CONFLICT CALENDAR

The Conflict Calendar plays an important role in casting a show. “Conflicts” that arise AFTER a show is cast are the same as “missing a rehearsal.” All KNOWN conflicts must be declared at registration. Absences arising after the Conflict Calendar is submitted must go through the Attendance Supervisor and could jeopardize your casting in the production. You can download a copy of the CCF 2024 Conflict Calendar 0614 It will also be emailed to you when you complete your registration. Please note: 

PRODUCTION WEEKS

Production Weeks are the last two weeks on our rehearsal schedule. Leads are required not to participate in any overnight activities during production weeks. We require that you clear your child’s schedule of all outside activities during production weeks. Extra activities during production weeks sap the energy from their performances.

Any time an actor or actress needs to miss a performance due to unforeseen circumstances, permission and arrangements for their replacement MUST be coordinated through a Director.
