Greetings to you, the lucky finder of this Golden Ticket, from Mr. Willy Wonka! I shake you warmly by the hand! Tremendous things are in store for you! Many wonderful surprises await you!
For now, I do invite you to come to the stage of Smith Auditorium before the show and be my guest for one chocolate bar—you and all others who are lucky enough to find my Golden Tickets. You will be conducted around my chocolate factory, and be shown everything that there is to see.
But this is by no means the most exciting thing that will happen on the day of your visit. I am preparing other surprises that are even more marvelous and more fantastic for you and for all my beloved Golden Ticket holders—mystic and marvelous surprises that will entrance, delight, intrigue, astonish, and perplex you beyond measure. In your wildest dreams you could not imagine that such things could happen to you! Just wait and see!
And now, here are your instructions: the day I have chosen for the visit is the Twenty-First and Twenty-Second day in the month of November. On these days, and on no other, you must come to the stage when called before the show to redeem your Golden Ticket. You will be presented with only one chocolate bar per Golden Ticket.
And you are allowed to bring to the stage with you one member of your own family to look after you and to ensure that you don’t get into mischief. One more thing—be certain to have your ticket with you, otherwise you will not get your chocolate bar.

p.s. You will only find your lucky Golden Ticket hidden among the programs for Atomic City Children’s Theater production of Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka Jr. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Saturday. Admission, as always is FREE!
