Jr.” tells the story of how eccentric candy manufacturer Willie Wonka chooses
an heir to his business from among the five children who found “golden tickets”
in candy bars. With lyrics and music by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley,
this is the Broadway Junior Version of the stage musical based on Roald Dahl’s
