Theatre Coppell Announces Auditions for Charlotte's Web


Illustration of spider's web, pig, and spider; show poster for Charlotte's Web

Based on the book by E.B. White; adapted by Joseph Robinette

​Director: Janis Arthur

Assistant Director: Peggy Rosson

The Children's Literature Association named this "the best American children's book of the past two hundred years." All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat; 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." It's the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that provides an evening of enchantment.
