Program Description


Joins us as we enter a world of candy. Participants will have the opportunity to create various different chocolate sweets and candy, while enjoying a viewing of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! The feature is a 2005 film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story about a magical candy factory owned by an eccentric recluse. The movie stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Freddie Highmore as Charlie Bucket. Charlie is a poor boy who wins every young child’s dream, when he gets a chance to tour Willy Wonka’s amazing candy factory with four other – much naughtier – children. This movie is rated PG. This program is geared for youth in grades 4-8. This program is made possible thanks to the Friends of the First Colony Branch Library.
