The theatre department will be presenting an adapted version of the fantasy “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” for this year’s fall play.

Director Jennifer Ettinger explained how diligent the theatre students are working and how successful they’ve been while performing under pressure, helping them grow as actors.

“The play is about young Charlie Bucket, whose entire family is struggling to get by,” Ettinger said. “Life looks bleak until he discovers a golden ticket in a chocolate bar that gives him admittance to a tour of the famous Willy Wonka chocolate factory.”  

Ettinger said this play is unique because it speaks to different things about human nature. Each character represents one of the seven deadly sins making the play go from playful to slightly dark.  

The play will be held in the auditorium on Tuesday, Oct. 30 starting at 3:45 p.m. and Nov. 2-3 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $3 for students and senior citizens and $5 for adults. The play is free for children under 6 years old, all Bellevue Public Schools staff, and students with an activity card.
