Fall 2019 Musical

Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka

The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale.

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. Whoever 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 likable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory… or suffer the consequences.

Collaboration with Disney Theatricals for Peter and the Starcatcher

Shadow Mountain High School and the North Valley Art’s Academy Theatre Program worked with Disney Theatricals in New York as one of four high schools chosen across the nation to pilot Disney’s Peter and the Starcatcher before the amateur rights were released.

We provided Disney Theatricals with feedback on the challenges and opportunities this particular script provided for high school theatres.

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER and the NVAA Theater Program was featured in Raising Arizona Kids Magazine  – read the great press here

The North Valley Arts Academy’s performance of Peter and the Starcatcher was featured in the Paradise Valley Independent. . . check out the article here!
