We hope some of our customers and friends in Monroe, Louisiana were able to make the recent production of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” at the Strauss Theatre Center. Performances were held on July 19-22 and 26-29, and the reviews were stellar!
The local talent that came together to form the cast got high praises for doing such a wonderful job of bringing the colorful story of America’s favorite candy man to the stage. The audience found themselves laughing and clapping throughout the entire production!
Paul Michael Company was overjoyed to participate in the production in their own way by lending accessories to decorate the Strauss Theatre lobby. Our friend and the Vice President of Hospitality and Volunteers at the theater, Bobbette Prince, came to the Paul Michael Company store in Monroe, Louisiana and used her fantastic eye to pick out just what they needed to transform the lobby into a wacky Wonka wonderful!
If you were unable to make this production, there will be another chance to see local talent perform another classic with the production of “Cats” in October. All of us at Paul Michael Company can’t wait! We’re even practicing with our own kitties, Autumn and Guizmo, just in case they need any stand-ins!
