Ave Kids: Willy Wonka, Jr.
Auburn Avenue Theater, 10 Auburn Ave. 

Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka Jr. tells the zany musical tale of Willy Wonka and his challenge to the children who love his chocolate. This version will be bright, charming, and full of laughter for the entire family. Join Willy Wonka and his staff of Oompa Loompas as they lead ticket winners Charlie, the gluttonous Augustus Gloop, gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde, television junkie Mike Teevee, and spoiled-rotten Veruca Salt through a maze of chocolate rivers, life-lessons, and laughs.

Tickets: $8. Call Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation at 253-931-3043, Monday-Thursday, 8:00 AM-9:00 PM; Friday, 8:00 AM-12:00 PM, or order online for Will-Call only pickup at Brown Paper Tickets.

Ave Kids: Snow White
Auburn Avenue Theater, 10 Auburn Ave.

Hilarity ensues when the banished Snow White meets the Dorf Family - 7 brothers (played by 3 silly actors). Can the Dorf brothers keep Snow White safe and out of the Queen's way? Performed by Storybook Theater and Adaptation by Lani Brockman - Music & Lyrics by Susan Bardsley.
