Charlie & The Chocolate Factory Trip to Milwaukee

Thursday & Friday, March 18 & 19, 2021
Willy Wonka is the most famous candy maker in the world, an eccentric confectioner who is a total recluse. No one else in the world has ever stepped foot inside his famous chocolate factory. A contest is announced, and five golden tickets have been hidden inside five Wonka chocolate bars, and whoever finds them will be led on a tour of the factory by the mysterious Mr. Wonka himself. Underdog Charlie Bucket wins a golden ticket, and so steps into the chocolate factory, a realm of candy-covered delights where nothing is quite as it seems.
