October 12 @ 11:00 am - October 13 @ 11:00 am

Event Navigation

The Children’s Literature Association named this “the bestAmerican children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play thatcaptures this work in a thrilling and utterly practical theatrical presentation. There is Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wantsto avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend anda good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some pig.” It’s the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte.
