“Charlotte’s Web” will be performed at the South Carolina Children’s Theatre in downtown Greenville on select days beginning Sept. 22.

Based on E.B. White’s classic book, the play follows the unlikely friendship between Wilbur the pig and Charlotte the spider. When Wilbur faces the threat of being sent to the butcher, Charlotte comes up with a plan to save him using her talent for spinning words.

“Charlotte’s Web” will run through Oct. 8 on the theater’s Bell Stage. The show is directed by Connor Vetter and stars Alex Byrd, Zac Cooley, Claire Quackenbush, Elijah Foulkes, Tesia Hennessy, Meredith Borden, Wesley Hix, Vi Hix, Quincy Adair, Jenn Januchowski, Anna Brown, Townsend Reynolds, Gloriana Howard, Charlie Johnson, Leila D. Rimes and Haleigh Roberts.

“We are thrilled to bring ‘Charlotte’s Web’ to our stage,” said SCCT Artistic Director Matt Giles. “‘Charlotte’s Web’ is one of the great classics of children’s literature. The unlikely friendship between Charlotte and Wilbur reminds us that when we are open to all the love and wonder the world has to offer, everything will be OK.”

The show is recommended for children in third grade and older.

Tickets are $22 per person and may be purchased in person at the SCCT box office at 153 Augusta St., by phone at 864-235-2885 or online at scchildrenstheatre.org/tickets.
