Charlotte's Web Plays at Westport

Westport Country Playhouse’s Family Festivities Series will present the treasured tale “Charlotte’s Web,” based on E. B. White’s loving story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte, on Sunday, Feb. 28, at 1 and 4 pm.

Recommended for grades K - 5, the show is approximately one hour and produced by TheatreworksUSA.

Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman. She will create a “miracle.” Spinning the words “Some Pig” in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig, but ensures his place on the farm forever. Featuring mad-cap and endearing farm animals, “Charlotte’s Web” explores bravery, selfless love and the true meaning of friendship.

Pre-show activities, for which reservations are required, begin one hour before the performances at noon and 3 pm. Pre-show activities for “Charlotte’s Web” will be an exploration of animal personalities and sounds, interactive games and friendship.
