Charlotte's Web

by E.B. White

Adapted by Joseph Robinette

Come to the Phoenix Theatre and share in the story of the delightful pig, Wilbur, and his friendship with the incredible barn spider, Charlotte.  When Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered by the farmer, Charlotte writes messages praising Wilbur (such as "Some Pig") in her web in order to persuade the farmer to let him live.
