‘Willy Wonka’ a miracle on the Rogue Playhouse stage


GOLD BEACH – Ellensburg Theater Company (ETC) brought one of the best sets and a series of special effects ever seen on the Rogue Playhouse stage for its performance of  “Willy Wonka.”

Layers of curtains created a three-dimensional effect to an otherwise flat backdrop. Panels on wheels helped create the 20 scenes – 12 in the first act – that brought to life the interior and exterior of the Bucket family home and the many rooms inside the chocolate factory.

Many special effects were used in creating the chocolate factory, which included the chocolate river, riding a boat on the river, the inventing room, a choco-vision room where a boy is shown on a television screen and removed by Wonka and finally, the Wonkavator, a flying elevator.
