The Friends of the Frankfort Public Library are excited to announce the Clinton County Youth Theatre’s production of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Performances are 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Jan. 24 and 25, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26. Tickets, which are $7 a piece, are now on sale and may be purchased from at the Circulation Desk of the Frankfort Community Public Library. Each performance will include five opportunities to find a lucky “golden ticket!” Winners will receive a prize the night of the play.

Charlie & the Chocolate Factory is directed by Anthony Bacon and Adam Nichols. The play stars Cole Riegle as Willy Wonka and Cayden Carter as Charlie Bucket. This production is made possible by the kind support of many donors including The Friends of the Frankfort Public Library, Encompass Federal Credit Union, and The Farmers Bank. Produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.

According to author Keri Smith, “Creativity is inherently destructive” and the Teen Department at FCPL is offering students that opportunity with an upcoming program called, “Wreck this Journal.” The event will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 9 from 4–6 p.m. Participates will create their own journal from scratch!

Teens are invited to learn how to “adult” without fear with FCPL’s new program series, Adulting 101. These classes will kick-off with Adulting 101: Goal Setting and Creative Calendars, which will be held on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The event will feature guest speaker Sofia Stout Salerno, avid bullet journalist and artist. Salerno is a graduate of Indiana University Kokomo and now works for a Fortune 500 company in North Carolina. She will offer tips on setting and keeping positive goals in the New Year. Participants will receive the supplies and an opportunity to set up their bullet journal with Sofia’s help. There are two opportunities to participate: a session designed to accommodate homeschool families will be held at 10 a.m. and a general session will be at 4 p.m. This is a free event, open to the public, but registration is preferred.
