EB White’s Charlotte’s web centers on the tender, life-changing friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a spider named Charlotte. The central theme of the story is friendship. Specifically, how true friendship often involves self-sacrifice.

Charlotte’s web is directed by Steven Bucko, who said, “This show allows me to do two things that I love: working with young actors and telling stories to young audiences. The power and impact of stories shines through them like a beacon to remind me why theater is vital and necessary now and forever. It’s also a story that doesn’t belittle its audience and doesn’t shy away from emotions of sadness or fear. It celebrates the whole of life and allows the public to experience all it has to offer.

Bucko added, “Our screenplay is a wonderful adaptation that stays incredibly faithful to the book while transforming the narrative for the stage in a way the whole family will enjoy. I had 32 amazing cast and an incredibly talented production team working very hard to magically bring this book to life. I’m so proud of the work we’ve done and can’t wait for people to see it. Whether you’re 5, 55 or 105, whether you’ve read the book 25 times or never even heard of it, I promise you an exciting experience you won’t soon forget.
