Willy Wonka Jr was presented by the Blanchard-Stony Brook Productions in March 2008. The play is based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, this adaptation is a timeless story of the world-famous Willy Wonka and his quest to find an heir for his candy factory.
More than 100 people including Stony Brook student cast and crew members, Westford Academy student volunteers, and parent volunteers have worked hard for several months to pull off what turned out to be a wonderful and well-produced evening at the Stony Brook auditorium.
Long-time Blanchard-Stony Brook Productions director Carol Fisher returned to direct Willy Wonka, after a brief hiatus. Rachel Burns was the show’s choreographer, after a successful run as director/choreographer of Grease last fall at Blanchard Middle School. Dan Rodriguez was the music director for the production. Producers include Laurie DeTolla, Rob Gilgen, Susan Kimball, Katherine Pouliopoulos, Marie Doctor, and Louise Marinilli.
The best float was awarded the “Roudenbowl” to the Robinson and Crisafulli school float this year at the conclusion of the 2008 Apple Blossom Parade. Vice Principal of the Robinson and Crisafulli schools, Sharon Kennelly, said the float centered on the Robifulli trail. The leaves on the trees on the float were made out of handprints of the kids from the Crisafulli school and the path was made out of the footprints of kids from the Robinson school. The Robifulli Trail was created by two local Boy Scout Troops. Justin Gray, an Eagle Scout, headed the construction of the trail connecting the two schools. Michael Blanchette, another Eagle Scout, constructed the Outdoor Classroom.
