“Willy Wonka” Live at the Texas Theatre
Palestine – Palestine Community Theatre (PCT) is gearing up to bring audiences a sticky-sweet confection of “Pure Imagination!” Roald Dahl’s timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir will soon come to life at the Historic Texas Theatre in the musical adaptation, with classic songs from the Oscar-nominated family film.
Based on Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), the play, “Willy Wonka” brings the story to the stage, including favorites songs such as “Pure Imagintaion” and “Candy Man.” Roald Dahl’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” became a cult classic and has gone on to become one of the most beloved titles in the history of children’s cinema. PCT is excited to bring this classic to one of the oldest and most beautiful theatres in East Texas!
