CHARLOTTE’S WEB IS NOT JUST FOR KIDS!

Based on the classic tale by E.B White and adapted for theater by Joseph Robinette, “Charlotte’s Web” tells the story about how the dire fate of a runt pig named “‘Wilbur”, is miraculously altered by the efforts of an altruistic spider named “Charlotte”.

The story touches on some important contemporary yet timeless themes: How we are different yet connected at the core by our humanity. How we can reach across the divide of “difference’ to sustain life and thereby safeguard future generations. And ultimately, this is about the profound and transformative nature of friendship. For example, even a gluttonous rat named “Templeton” rises above his own self-serving nature to help save “Wilbur”, the pig!

Our large and talented cast is comprised of very experienced actors, singers and dancers, as well as some for whom this will be a debut performance. Most of our youngest performers are from the Islands, but we also have adults who hail from Montpelier, South Burlington and Milton! Some are experienced actors/dancers/singers who have had a long history performing on the Islands and elsewhere. For a few it will be their swan song, and for others, a return to the stage after a long absence. There will even be some surprise cameo appearances from well-known personalities in the community!

We hope to delight, move, surprise, and WOW you.

BE CAUGHT IN A WEB OF ENCHANTMENT!
