Please select two lines to read/recite at your audition:
Television Host: This just in! Hidden amongst the world’s Wonka bars are five golden tickets. And to the five people that find them comes the most fabulous prize one could wish for. A lifetime supply of chocolate and each winner before they receive their prize will get to go on a tour of the famous Wonka factory.
Wonka 1: I know what you’re thinking. They can’t be doing what they’re doing. But they are. They have to! I haven’t met an oompa loompa yet that can do it. These are the geese that lay golden eggs. They’re laying overtime right now for Easter.
Wonka 2: I can’t go on for forever and I don’t really want to try. So who can I trust to run the factory when I leave? Who will take care of the oompa loompas for me? Not a grownup. A grownup would want to do everything his own way, not mine. That’s why I decided a long time ago that I had to find a child. A very honest, loving child. To whom I can tell all my most precious candy making secrets.
Beauregarde Parent: Explodes? I’ll get you for this Wonka! If it’s the last thing I do! (sadly) I’ve got a blueberry for a daughter.
Grandpa Jo: Alright Charlie, help me up. Look at me! Look at me. I’m up and about. I haven’t done this in twenty years! Let’s go Charlie!
Violet: Madness. It’s tomato soup, it’s so hot I can feel it rushing down my throat.Hey! Second course is coming up. Mhmm roast beef and a baked potato. Here comes dessert. Blueberry pie and cream. It’s the most wonderful thing I’ve ever tasted.
Veruca: I just knew I’d find a golden ticket! I made daddy’s workers shell Wonka bars for two weeks straight and you know what? I got one! It’s mine, all mine. (pretends that the parent interrupts her) Oh shhhh Daddy! This is my moment to shine and I won’t let anyone ruin it.
Agustus: (pretending to eat chocolate) I feel sorry for Wonka, it is going to cost him a fortune in fudge.
Mike: Look at me everyone! I’m the first person in the world to be sent by television. Wow, what a wild trip that was. It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. Am I coming in clear? Mom, I said, am I coming in clear?
Charlie: Mr. Wonka, what is going to happen to the other kids? Agustus? Veruca? Will they be okay? What about your factory? The prize?
