E.B. White's classic novel is brought to new heights in this enchanting musical version of Charlotte's Web. With music and lyrics by Tony-award winning Charles Strouse (Annie, Bye Bye Birdie) and book by Joseph Robinette(national award-winning children's playwright), this beloved tale of the value of true friendship comes to life on stage in this joyous musical for the whole family.

All the familiar characters are here: Wilbur (Jackson Flaherty, Mansfield, MA), the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern (Chloe Newman, Attleboro, MA), a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton (Ellie Zinno, Sharon, MA), 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 (Anya Doherty, Foxboro, MA), 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." It's the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte.

The young cast of talented first through sixth graders is guided by Director and Coyle and Cassidy High School Senior Katie Armstrong (Mansfield, MA). Choreography has been created by Mansfield High School Junior Hailey Corrigan with Music Direction by Linda Barbieri (Attleboro, MA).
