Director's Note

In the words of the playwright, “Welcome to the tale of a delicious adventure in a wonderful  land…can’t you smell it already?” We are so happy to have you join us for this very special show. We hope you get to enjoy it with your classmates, teachers, friends, and family. At LCT, we are an organization of friends, students, community members, and teachers who all work together NOT like a factory…but like a family.

In this story, written many years ago, there are timeless themes to explore. In our present production, the one that is most meaningful to me as a director is the subject of family. The play focuses on Willy Wonka, some misguided youth, a group of self-motivated factory workers called “Oompa Loompas,” a sincere, genuine child named Charlie, and families who support all of them in their successes and failures alike. In the end, we hope our audience (that’s you!) enjoys witnessing this support and love which ultimately leads to…well…just watch and see!

As the importance of family (chosen and otherwise) is our theme, then I would be remiss not to thank our LCT Team and our cast and crew’s families for all their support during pre-production, throughout rehearsals, and for our production for all of you.

Indigenous peoples have lived on the land now called Kentucky for at least 12,000 years. Every community owes its existence and heritage to generations from around the world who contributed their hopes, dreams, and stories to making the history that led to this moment. Indigenous peoples have always lived on the land that is now called Kentucky and continue to live here today. The place we now call Kentucky is primarily Shawnee, Cherokee, Chickasaw, and Osage land.

A commonly cited claim many of us heard in history class growing up is that this region was merely a hunting ground. This claim is a myth, perpetuated at first by land speculators who wished to improve land sales, and still today to absolve settler colonists and their descendants from grappling with their history of land theft, genocide, and white supremacy. The continuation of this myth is harmful for all of us.

Lexington Children’s Theatre is committed to creating an environment where everyone feels welcome to enjoy the magic of theatre. Learn more about Audio Description, ASL Interpretation, Sensory Friendly Performance, and Pre-Visit Resources by following the link below.
