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.
