I am beyond excited about this Alamo Drafthouse event!!! My cousin Meghan and I were obsessed with this movie when we were kids. Actually, we still are. This will be our second Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory quote and sing-along but this time, Veruca Salt (Julie Dawn Cole) and Mike Teevee (Paris Themmen) will be there in person! How did they know she was my absolute favorite? I remember begging my high school theater teacher to let us do Willy Wonka for the production just so I could be Veruca. It didn't work.
I was crafty this week and made us some Veruca inspired tshirts to wear Sunday night. I bought some red shirts from Target, added some lace collars and black buttons down the center and on the sleeves. Veruca's version was modest but we're gonna slut it up with some V necks. Haha!
I love this character so much. She wants everything, no matter what it is. She'll even enslave an Oompa Loompa if Wonka would let her. I wonder if she'll be in the audience singing along...
I can't wait to stuff my face with candy, dipping everything in the chocolate fountain and blow bubbles along with Charlie and Grandpa Joe. This is going to be spectacular!
Have a great weekend!
