The Winterset Stage (at the Iowa Theater)
Pack up the whole family to go see the beloved tale of Charlotte’s Web produced by the Winterset Stage November 14th – 17th.
The Children’s Literature Association named this “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling and utterly practical theatrical presentation. All the enchanting 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; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.”
These performances will take place at the Iowa Theater, the home of The Winterset Stage, on 121 N John Wayne Drive. Tickets are available online through The Winterset Stage (don’t try to buy them from the Iowa Theater, they won’t be able to help you.) Be warned that tickets are selling really fast so don’t wait!
