Steve TouVelle, Laila Haley, John Donald O’Shea, Ali Girsch, Gina Cox, Payton Wilson, Corey Delathower, Jane Driscoll, and Yvonne Siddique in Willy WonkaThe requisite imagination present in Quad City Music Guild’s production of Willy Wonka is provided in great part by Bill Marsoun's scenic design. He’s come up with some clever visuals to tell the tale of Charlie Bucket – portrayed as female here by Laila Haley – finding a golden ticket and joining four lucky, and bratty, children on a tour of Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.

Tom Morrow, Sandy Glass, Hannah McNaught, and Dana Moss-Peterson in Leaving IowaIt doesn’t happen often, especially if you attend a lot of local theatre – where the on-stage faces tend to become familiar ones. But every once in a while, you’ll be at a production that you’re really enjoying, and gradually realize that you’re routinely focusing on one performer above the others – and asking yourself, with a grin, “Who is that?”

Mike Millar & Stephanie Perry in "It's a Wonderful Life: The Musical"This past Saturday, I had the unique opportunity to catch two local theatrical productions: St. Ambrose University's Narnia (an hour-long stage version of C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe) and the Quad City Music Guild's presentation of It's a Wonderful Life: The Musical. (Both closed on Sunday, December 3.)

Despite obvious differences in subject matter and audience demographic - Narnia was geared toward the 10-and-under set, while Wonderful Life was designed for ... well, pretty much everyone else - the shows did bear a striking similarity, in that both were musical adaptations of decidedly un-musical works with enormous fan bases; St. Ambrose and Music Guild could probably have secured full houses based on the titles alone.
