Show Description:

We are still seeking actors aged 16 years and older for various roles. This is for any additional actors who may want to audition; these are not callbacks.

Charlotte's Web is based on E.B. 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 Zuckerman. She will create a "miracle." Spinning the words "Some Pig" in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution that not only makes Wilbur a prize pig but also ensures his place on the farm forever. Joseph Robinette’s adaptation features the memorable, madcap, and endearing farm animals, and explores bravery, selfless love, and the true meaning of friendship.
