Charlotte's Web

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.

We invite you to join us in celebrating what stories young playwrights will imagine this school year in an all-new play filled with laughter, lessons, and learning for us all.
