Wilbur may be the runt of the pig litter, but he’s living large after capturing the heart of his farm owner’s young daughter, Fern. That is until Wilbur grows too big, and is shipped off to a farm owned by Fern’s uncle. There, Wilbur discovers his eventual fate…the dinner table! It’s up to Charlotte, Wilbur’s new, wise, and kind-hearted spider friend, to hatch a plan to save him. A heartwarming adaptation of E.B. White’s inspiring story, Charlotte’s Web explores bravery, selfless love, and the meaning of true friendship.
Charlotte's Web adapted by Joseph Robinette and based on the book by E.B. White will play select Saturdays and Sundays October 1 - November 26. Charlotte's Web is part of a four-show Children's Theatre Series. Subscribe and see all four shows for just $5 per show!
