Aspiring thespians from the Northbrook Park District’s Jr. Theater Division taught the audience many sweet lessons about honesty and integrity during performances of their recent production of “Willy Wonka Jr.” 

Performing Arts Supervisor, Drew Kambach, explained that selecting “Willy Wonka Jr.” appealed to him because of the moral of the story and the many opportunities it presented for all the young performers in grades 3-5.
