Hayswood Theatre presents Charlotte’s Web

April 16 - April 26

| $13 – $15

The Children’s Literature Association named this “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling and utterly practical theatrical presentation.  All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to 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 and a 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. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that will give your actors a great opportunity and your audience an evening of enchantment.

Performance dates for CHARLOTTE’S WEB are weekends April 16 – 26 with Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $13.00 for seniors 65 and older and children 17 and under.  Tickets may be purchased online at http://hayswoodtheatre.org or by calling the Blaine H. Wiseman Visitor Center at (812) 738-2138.
