The Children’s Literature Association named Charlotte’s Web “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and The YMCA Boulton Center has crafted a play that captures this work in a thrilling original adaptation that encompasses live actors, puppets, and multimedia. All of your favorite 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, 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.” This is a beautiful, musical play about friendships, life, and death.
