The 2011-12 Communion of Saints School Drama Club mesmerized the audience with its production of "Willy Wonka, Jr.," based on the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. The cast of 60 children in grades kindergarten through eighth grade was directed by drama teacher Lydia Chanenka and musical director Maria Bottilodovico. The drama club is part of the school's enrichment program, which was established three years ago and is supported by parish and school volunteers. Volunteers build sets, design scenery, costumes and props, and manage rehearsal schedules, communications and marketing.
