New Boston Student, Alex Fox Earns Lead in Nashua Catholic Wildcat Theatre’s Production of Willy Wonka Junior
Nashua, NH – April 6, 2016 - Alex Fox, a seventh grader from New Boston, has earned the lead in Nashua Catholic Wildcat Theatre’s musical production of Willy Wonka Junior, Roald Dahl’s adaptation of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The musical is perfectly suited for kids of all ages with kid-friendly humor, lively singing, and theatrical and dancing wizardry.
New to acting, Alex made his acting debut last year when he joined his sister in the Wildcat Theatre’s production of Shrek, Jr. The acting bug quickly got a hold of him and this year he brings his singing and dancing talents to the lead role as Willy Wonka himself.
The quiet and unassuming seventh grader, who loves soccer, plays the lead role as the exuberant Willy Wonka, the greatest inventor and maker of chocolates of all time. Alex is joined by an able cast of 25 who sing and dance their way into our hearts as they tell the sweet story of the eccentric genius’ search for an heir to his candy empire.
The Nashua Wildcat Theatre will be performing Willy Wonka Junior on Friday, April 15, 2016 at 7:00 P.M. and again on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 2:00 P.M. at Nashua Catholic Auditorium at 6 Bartlett Avenue, Nashua, NH 03064.
Tickets are available at the door and are $10 for adults and $7 for seniors and students. For more information please call us at (603) 882-7011 or visit our website www.ncrjhs.org.
