Woodville Theatre for Youth created their very own make believe chocolate factory at The Woodville.
The 23 youngsters, most of whom had never met, were given a short script and tasked to come up with ideas on how to condense Charlie and the Chocolate Factory into a 20 minute performance at the Gravesend theatre.
By day three, the children, aged between seven and 15, had put together their very own show with four Willy Wonkas and several Charlie Buckets.
Woodville Theatre for Youth Instructor Claire Goatham said “The performers worked so hard all week to devise a vibrant and original version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
“For some of the cast this was their first experience of performing, but watching the final performance you never would have guessed.
“The performers truly put their heart and soul into making the show a success and it was an absolute pleasure getting to know such talented and creative young people.
“We set up a little photo shoot on the last day and each of the young people got to take home their own head shot too, it was lovely to see their proud faces as they handed over their photos to the parents after the show.”
Those proud parents watched their children take to the stage and perform their own version of the show last Thursday afternoon.
Those taking part included Mya Khatkar, Tilly Lamprell, Ella Nicholson, Jasmine Angus, Simran Kandola, Mia Diaz Del Castillo, Emily Woolley, Anna Luxford, Samantha Harvey, Grace Lindfield, Emily Lindfield, Thomas Barnet, Leah Coombes, Jordan Burns, Ellie Burns, Chloe Tidbury, Tyler Spensley, Ella Kemp, Tayla Cox, Billy Mayhew, Chan Luca and Aston Cosford.
