The weather was rainy and cool. I wore a sweater and was comfortable both walking from the parking lot to the theater and inside during the show..

Show was great. No intermission, hard to maintain focus for smaller kids. Would recommend intermission.

E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web was a Newbery Honor Book in 1953.

Description

Directed by Tammy Mader

Charlotte’s Web tells the story of Fern, a little girl who loves a sweet pig named Wilbur, and their friendship with a spider named Charlotte.  Wilbur lives an idyllic barnyard life until he learns that he will soon be sent to the slaughterhouse. In order to help save him, Charlotte crafts a plan to spin kind words about Wilbur in her web, hoping that Farmer Zuckerman will realize what a wonderful pig he is and spare his life.  Thanks to Charlotte and the mischievous rat Templeton, Wilbur not only lives, but also becomes a prize pig, ensuring his place on the farm forever. This endearing tale for the whole family celebrates the value of friendship, love and devotion.
