Charlotte's Web

White's loving story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zucherman--she create a "miracle."  Spinning the words "Some Pig" in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig, but ensures his place on the farm forever. This treasure tale, featuring mad-cap and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love, and the true meaning of friendship. ALL PERFORMANCE ARE SOLD OUT!
