The performances are from 7 until 9 p.m. each night. There is also a performance on Saturday afternoon from 2 until 4 p.m. The Drama Club will also perform for Enterprise City Schools Friday morning from 9 until 11.
EHS Theatre Director Veronica Stephenson is joined by DJHS Dram Club Sponsors Michelle Barber, Michaela Cadden and Patsy Holland in hosting the production of Ronald Dahl’s Willy Wonka Jr., which is based on Dahl’s book “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”
“We’ve involved Dauphin students with spring shows since 2019 with the production of The Lion King, Jr.,” said Stephenson. “It’s a great way for my high school students to get experience with directing and producing. Last year they were in the high school production of Seussical.”
