A pig destined for the butcher block is saved when a loyal friend (and spider) tricks the farmer into believing this pig is extraordinary. Watch the heartwarming story of Wilbur and Charlotte unfold as they navigate change and disruption together. The play praises the beauty of life and the value of friendship during difficult times. E.B. White’s poetic lyricism is skillfully adapted by Joseph Robinette to showcase all of the joy and humor of this beloved classic story.

Artistic Director Matt Giles: “Charlotte’s Web is one of the all-time classics of children’s literature. It is a beautiful piece about friendship, while also allowing students to explore concepts of grief and loss. I’m thrilled to welcome back Connor Vetter (of last season’s Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! The Musical!) to helm this project.”
