Oversized lollipops, saltwater taffy and the aroma of melting chocolate set the scene at the Wonka Golden Ticket Party Nov. 26 at the Kaua’i War Memorial Convention Hall. Games, backstage tours and a keiki lunch were part of the mix leading up to a performance of Willy Wonka, The Musical, put on by Hawaii Children’s Theatre, produced by Debra Blachowiak.
