Join lovable friends in the Children’s Literature Association’s “best American children’s book of the past two hundred years” in their tale of friendship and enchantment, love and belonging. Meet 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.”
Join us at the Chief Theater in Chiefland as the Suwannee Valley Players present E.B. White’s popular classic Charlotte’s Web adapted by Joseph Robinette.
