Oct. 29 – Dec. 6, 2015
Adapted by Joseph Robinette. Based on the book by E.B. White.
"It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer."
E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web has been named “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years” by the Children’s Literature Association. NCT’s acclaimed stage version of this timeless story has won the hearts of children and their families like no other play in our repertoire. We welcome Fern, Charlotte, Wilbur, and Templeton back to our stage every few years, inviting new generations of children and their families to share this remarkable story together, told as only NCT can tell it. It is deep in the early, just before dawn, and Fern’s delightful little runt pig, Wilbur, appears to be headed for the dinner table – and not in a good way – when he is saved through the remarkable literary efforts of a spider named Charlotte. Wilbur may be “Terrific,” and he certainly is “Some Pig,” but it is up to Charlotte to tell it to the world. This long time family classic is a beautiful story of friendship and sacrifice, and in Nashville Children’s Theatre’s acclaimed production, when that wonderful spider sets about her devoted work, you will believe in the miracle of Charlotte’s Web.
