Charlotte’s Web


Jennifer Lee as Charlotte and Cubby Rupers as Wilbur.

Rose of Athens Theatre continues its eighth season by bringing classic literature to life through the timeless tale Charlotte’s Web. Based on the novel by E.B. White and adapted by Joseph Robinette, the story follows the journey of a little pig named Wilbur—the runt of the litter who has been temporarily spared from slaughter—and his unusual friendship with an intelligent barn spider named Charlotte, who formulates a plan for Wilbur’s continued survival. Under the direction of Rose veteran Dillon Nelson, the musical promises plenty of singing, dancing and audience interaction. In addition to the public shows listed above, Rose of Athens will host field trip performances for elementary schools, followed by talkbacks with the cast and crew, Wednesday, Mar. 5–Friday, Mar. 7 at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Admission is $16 for adults, $8 for children ages 12 and under, and $12 for students.
