Chocolate & Crafts on a Cold Weekend!

It’s been a cold, wet week in Sanford, and it looks like the miserable weather will be continuing until Sunday at least. Despite the weather, there’s still tons to do in Sanford indoors and away from the cold!

This weekend on Friday, Saturday and Sunday the students of Lee County will be performing “Willy Wonka Jr.” at Lee County High School. Based on the classic 1971 film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s 1964 book, the musical production will feature familiar songs such as “The Candy Man” and “Pure Imagination.” The show stars Elementary, Middle and High School students from across Lee County and costs $10 for adults and $5 for students. There will be shows today (Friday, November 15th) and Saturday at 7:00pm with an early show on Sunday at 2:30pm.
