[ # ] Willy Wonka’s golden ticket winners reunited!
November 6th, 2017 under 70s, Reunions

46 years ago, the World fell in love with the movie version of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Over the weekend, they did a live performance of it at the Hollywood Bowl and some of the original cast members reunited for the production.

No word if they used Charlie’s glass elevator to get to Hollywood, but I would not be surprised if that is exactly what Michael Bollner (Augustus), Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca Salt), Peter Ostrum (Charlie) and Paris Themmen (Mike Teevee) did to get here. Either that or Weird Al Yankovic, who was playing all of the Oompa Loompas, finally rescued them from the Chocolate Factory and brought them to the show.

Either way, are you as happy as Charlie was when he find that golden ticket to see them all together again? I know I am! Too bad Gene Wilder is not alive to enjoy the love we still have for the movie that has made so many kids happy over the last 4 decades!

BTW can you believe that they are all between 58-60 years old? I still see them as those little kids meeting Willy Wonka for the first time and running into his Chocolate Factory. From Pure Imagination to pure joy!
