CHATHAM, NJ - Jean-Eudes Haeringer is the proud parent of an Oompa Loompa, 7th grader Jean-Cordell, who will be performing in the Chatham Middle School production of Willy Wonka Jr. that opens Thursday.

But he's also very interested in seeing the set and props used during the play since he made them with his own hands.

"Yes, I'm excited to see the play," Haeringer said. "I had the place to myself between Christmas and New Year and that's when I finished building it."

The Chatham resident has experience in designing and building custom homes, but he now does a lot of handyman work around town, including middle school sets when he has the time.

"I made the boat, I made the gates and the candy carts," he said. "When you flip the candy carts they become the TV, where the kid gets shrunk. When you flip the bedroom it becomes the scale. The boat turns into the chocolate vat."
