Willy Wonka

Kai first appeared in his fourth grade production of Steal Away Home as Obie, a lead character, and he's excited to be playing Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka Jr. He is very grateful to his parents for helping him with his singing and acting, and he's also grateful for comic strips and TV shows for making him crazy enough to fit the bill for Wonka. Being his first (and last) year at Lamar, Kai was surprised when he learned that he had gotten the lead in the musical. Kai tries to live life by the words of Dwight Schrute in one of his favorite TV shows, The Office: “Whenever I’m about to do something, I think, ‘Would an idiot do that?’ And if they would, I do not do that thing.” and Michael Scott: “You know what they say, ‘Fool me once, strike one, but fool me twice… Strike three.” If he listens to those wise words, he's sure to get somewhere.
