Par­ents in the Trin­ity Bay North area are rush­ing to get their “golden ticket” for an im­pres­sive pro­duc­tion to be pre­sented by Catalina Ele­men­tary — the mu­si­cal play, “Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka Jr.”

With 25 stu­dents from Grade 4-8, the play is the third mu­si­cal for the small school, but the most am­bi­tious yet.

Ben Doo­ley is a Grade 7 and mu­sic teacher at the school, who runs the drama group and is the di­rec­tor be­hind “Willy Wonka Jr.”

Doo­ley told The Packet the book on which it is based is his favourite book ever.
