Roald Dahl’s “Willy Wonka Jr.” follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever 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, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket and his grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory — or suffer the consequences. Tickets: $16 for adults, $14 for senior/military, $10 for students, ages three and younger free.
