West Forest Drama Club Performs Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

March 8, 2024

TIONESTA, Pa. – The West Forest Drama Club presented the classic tale of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on March 1, 2024.

It is based on the book by Roald Dahl and produced by special arrangement with DRAMATIC PUBLISHING of Woodstock, Illinois. Over 20 students in grades 4 – 11 took part in the popular show. Dinner was served before the show by the Forest Fires Girls Basketball team and coach.

Mr. John Wortman directed with production assistance from Mrs. Lori Beatty, Miss Michelle Mazur, Mr. Matt Douthett, Mrs. Jane Cislon, Mrs. Valerie Watson, Mrs. Renee Conti and Mrs. Jennifer Carll.

This production was challenging for the students and adults not only because of the intricacy of the dialogue and movements, but also due to illness amongst the cast and crew, and the show was limited to a one night performance. However, it was still a rousing success and the actors and actresses are excited to bring another classic work to life on the stage very soon!
