First Stage Charlie Bars!

By: Jenny Loeffler

"So watch out for the Golden Tickets! Five Golden Tickets have been hidden underneath the ordinary wrapping paper of five ordinary candy bars.” Have you ever wished you could open up a chocolate bar and find that YOU won a Golden Ticket? Well, now that dream can become a reality! First Stage is selling Charlie Bars throughout the month of February in anticipation of its upcoming production of CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, running March 2nd through March 31st at the Marcus Center.

Everyone has the chance to win a Golden Ticket – because every Charlie Bar is a winner! Prizes range from a ticket discount to CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY to a three-play Family Package to First Stage’s 2012-2013 season. One lucky Golden Ticket winner will receive four tickets to First Stage’s CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, complete with a backstage tour, Family Workshop, gift certificates for concessions and merchandise in the theater lobby, dinner at Joey Buona’s Restaurant, a copy of the Roald Dahl classic “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” signed by the cast, and a three-play Family Package to First Stage’s 2012-2013 season!

Not only will your Golden Ticket provide you with something special, but proceeds from the sale of the First Stage Charlie Bars will support First Stage’s Commu
nity Partnership Program, a comprehensive program that makes First Stage programming available and easily accessible to low-income families and City of Milwaukee schools.

We know that you want a Charlie Bar Golden Ticket now, so make sure to get yours at any of the ten area Balistreri-owned Sendik’s Food Markets and at Kehr’s Candies at the Milwaukee Public Market. You can also find your Charlie Bars in the lobby during First Stage performances of DON’T LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center and A WRINKLE IN TIME at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.









Charlie Bars also make a great Valentine’s Day treat. Give them to a friend, a loved one, or to all of your classmates! Any which way you choose, they will make a tasty and rewarding Valentine’s gift! One Golden Ticket winner (and remember, everyone's a winner) sent us these pictures to show us her clever Valentine's Day idea...
