A Candy Kid Interview

By Xander Montford

I interviewed my friend Cadance James about her role as a Candy Kid in the Willy Wonka play. On Thursday, March 22, 2018, the first performance, a dress rehearsal, was performed for Central students, Saxtons River students, Grafton students, Westminster students, and Middle School students at Bellows Falls Union High School. Three other performances for the public were Friday, March 23 and March 24.

Cadance likes to perform, but sometimes she is a little nervous.  Students in the WNESU District got a phone call and an email telling them the director was looking for kids for the play.  As Cadance has been in two other BFUHS shows including Suessical and Beauty and the Beast, she said, “ I want to do this!” She also said, “When I get to high school I want to have main part!”  In the play, Cadance was a Candy Kid. She played a local child that hangs around the candy store in town. She was in the song and dance number “The Candy Man.”

“I had so much fun! I can’t wait to do it again next year!”
We look forward to seeing Cadance in future productions!
