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.
Teague Fernandez directs the adult cast (most playing multiple parts) in this lively story of friendship, loyalty, resourcefulness, and loss.
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.
Charlotte’s Web is APT’s third annual production for children and families hosted by St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in downtown Allentown! Here’s what our audiences are saying: “Awesome show!” “A fun play all the way around!” “We loved it!” “A super way to spend a Sunday!” “Amazing as always!” Come share the magic with us!
