On June 9th through the 11th, along with the 14th through the 18th, the Springfield Municipal Opera will be hosting Ronald Dahl's Willy Wonka. Several local children and young adults will be performing parts in the play, including the beloved characters we've all grown to know and love, along with one of an army of oompa loompas.
Amalia Schneider, Peyton Knowski , Ella Hohenstein, along with Zeke Kern appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show to discuss the play and their parts in it. Knowski says tickets for the show are reasonably priced.
One of the major roles in the story of Willy Wonka are the oompa loompas. The play has recruited a number of local children, including Taylorville resident Ella Hoenstein to play the parts. Knowski gave credit to the makeup department for the production, saying they did a good job with the kids.
