Willy Wonka the Musical

Winter Show Tickets Are On Sale!

We are so excited to put tickets on sale NOW for our winter shows! We have  two great shows planned: James and the Giant Peach, Jr. and Spongebob the Musical! Tickets to a show make great stocking stuffers!

Don’t worry – we’ve blocked out a number of good seats which will not go on sale until after the first parent meeting of each show – so you’ll have time to get your seats after you know if your student was cast and when you are scheduled to work shows for committee duties.


If you forgot to bring in your script (or couldn’t find it), keep looking!  Make sure all marks are erased, and then turn it in to the Journey office NO LATER THAN 2pm on Monday, Nov. 27.

The office is located in the US Digital Outreach Center building:

1400 NE 136th Ave #201
Vancouver, WA 98684

What is forking?

For those new to Journey, forking is one of our fun traditions!

Don’t be surprised if you wake up one morning to find your yard covered in plastic forks (and sometimes spoons and knives as well!).  You may even find paper plates with notes written on them (sharpies work best in cast of rain).

You may be asked by your student to drive a bunch of cast/crew around to fork others.  It’s so much fun!  Great memories!

Let everyone in your house know!

Director’s Event Help

Wow!  You guys did such a great job with this show and your ticket sales prove it!

Almost everyone in the cast and crew will be at the Director’s Event on December 2.

Please email me by Sunday afternoon if you are interested in helping to pick up/make/deliver/lay out/clean up food for the event.


Thank you!

Complimentary Student Tickets for Fall Shows

Students enrolled in a fall class get a complimentary ticket to any show they are not involved in as a cast or crew member. For example, a student in the cast or crew of Willy Wonka will get a comp ticket to see The Wizard of Oz. Students not in the cast or crew of either show will get one comp ticket to each show.

Enrolled families should have received an email (or two) regarding your students’ complimentary ticket(s). Those emails have codes that can be entered when tickets are purchased. If you do not see your assigned code(s), please email K.Sauter@journeytheater.org and she’ll be happy to send those to you.

Comps were applied to the Journey ticketing system (Arts People) in 1 of 2 ways:

1. If your family has an existing Arts People account, comps were added to that account.

2. If you do not have an Arts People account, one was created for you under the primary email on your Journey account. If you log in with that email when prompted during the ticketing process (you may need to set up a password), the codes should show up for you.  

Comp tickets must be redeemed online, ahead of time and may not be redeemed at the door. They are also available pending overall ticket availability. Tickets sell quickly, so be sure to redeem yours soon!
