Fountain Hills Youth Theater presents the popular children’s story, “Charlotte’s Web,” Sept. 23-Oct. 9.
“Charlotte’s Web” is the exciting musical version of the classic story by E.B. White. All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, 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, 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.”
“Charlotte’s Web” is produced by Anne Kelleher, directed by Ross Collins, with musical direction by Jennifer Whiting, choreography by Noël Irick and costume design by Mario Magena.
