You can’t not fall in love with Charlotte, Wilbur, the plucky girl Fern, and the other characters in Charlotte’s Web.  Most of them are farm animals who rally to save the life of a pig named Wilbur.

As Charlotte (Marian Barshinger) listens from her web, Wilbur (Emily Peiffer, center) is horrified when Templeton the Rat (Justin Ariola) tells why Wilbur is being fattened up – to make “crispy bacon, . . . sizzling sausage, . . .and heavenly ham!”

Teague Fernandez directs the adult cast (most playing multiple parts) in this lively story of friendship, loyalty, resourcefulness, and loss.

Wilbur’s zest for life is infectious. With help from Goose (Cheryl Moritz) and Gander (Thomas Rush), Wilbur breaks out of his pen  for a taste of freedom.
The problem is the adults, like Uncle Homer (Bill Joachim), who have a thing or two to learn about life.
The problem is some folks, like Uncle Homer (Bill Joachim), have a lot to learn about life.







Fernandez has also trained a small troupe of children for show-stealing cameos as baby pigs and baby spiders.

The hour-long play  brings to life the story’s humor and pathos that have captivated adults and children ever since E. B. White’s novella was published in 1952.  It continues to top School Library Journal surveys as the finest American children’s novel.
