MTG announces Summer Youth Theater Camp

MTG is thrilled to announce the show chosen for our 2024 summer youth theater camp! Drum roll, please.....

The show selected for this year is none other than the scrumpdillyicious Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR!

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 amazingly delicious 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, but the fifth is a likable young child 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.


MTG's FUN and FABULOUS theater camp will once again be directed by the talented and incomparable Katie Talberg!

Students will get to combine their love of performing with the excitement of summer camp! Campers, entering 2nd grade through 10th grade next school year, will learn through engaging theater games while they develop vocal and physical theater skills and techniques with the BEST camp counselors around!

PLUS, students will have an extra-special, unique, and privileged opportunity when they get to perform Willy Wonka JR, live on stage at the famous, historical MABEL TAINTER THEATER!!!
