Appropriate for pre-K-grade 4. Charlotte’s Web is the story of a pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a spider named Charlotte. When Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered by the farmer, Charlotte writes messages praising Wilbur in her web in order to persuade the farmer to let him live. This is a beautiful musical about friendship that will give children an opportunity to see one of the best children’s books of all time come to life! Presented by American Eagle Productions.
