The Port Jefferson Middle School Drama Club will present Roald Dahl’s “Willy Wonka JR.” based on the beloved classic story. Showtimes are Friday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. at the Earl L. Vandermeulen High School auditorium.

According to Mary LaSita, the middle school/high school librarian who serves as the club’s adviser, the production is a combined effort of close to 60 students – middle schoolers involved in the Drama Club, who make up the cast and stage crew, as well as student volunteers from the high school.

Admission to the performance is available for a suggested donation of $5 per ticket or $10 per family.
