Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; a different kind of holiday performance

Charlie, played by Nathrada Papernon, as she discovers the winning golden ticket.

By Shana Kongmun
Sangdao Performing Arts School students took to the stage for a dance performance of the popular children’s classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Sunday, November 23, 2014. Kids took center stage in the first half as the story unfolded in the sweet shop, with children performing as marshmallow treats, cotton candy and bubble gum. This was followed by the winners of the prized golden ticket; Augustina Gloop played by Chelsea Moore, Michel Teavee played by Teerisara Boontang, Violet Beauregarde played by Narissa Thitasuta and the very spoiled rich kid Veruca Salt played by Dacey Leutwiler. The first act ended with the poor Charlie Bucket finding the final golden ticket, played by Nathrada Papernon.

Dacey Leutwiler as Veruca Salt and Michel Teavee played by Teerisara Boontang as they fight over who goes to Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.

The second act saw the winning children perform in Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory with Willie Wonka played by Michael Allman. Everyone knows that the four greedy children end up disqualified due to their greed and the poor but kind Charlie inheriting the factory from Willie Wonka, but the dance performances from the students really made the show. The varied music and dance styles offered entertainment with a twist. The arrangement of this classic story in dance was thanks to Sophathai Kanthatham and Glenn van der Hoff, whose dedication to dance was clear in the performances of their students.
