This spring’s student production of Willy Wonka the Musical will include a chocolate waterfall, flying characters and a constantly moving set with 20 different scenes, along with plenty of Oompa Loompas, of course. Chelsea Sanders, Tom Price and others are busy figuring out how to make it all work before the show’s April 12 debut.

Garrick Johnson II has always been fascinated by how things work. It’s an interest that led him to major in mechanical engineering at Missouri S&T and helped him land his first job months before he’ll walk in his commencement ceremony.
