One of my families favorite stories will be live on stage at the Utah Children’s Theatre, just in time for Mothers Day. The story of Charlotte’s Web is a classic story of an unlikely friendship between a little girl, a baby piglet and a spider.
“After sparing the life of a baby piglet almost slaughtered due to his status as runt of the litter, a little girl named Fern Arable adopts it and nurtures it lovingly, naming it Wilbur. However, she is crushed when the piglet matures enough to be separated from his mother, and Wilbur is thus sent to reside on a farm owned by Fern’s uncle, Homer Zuckerman. Her powerful attachment to Wilbur mutual, the pig is left yearning for companionship but is snubbed by other barn animals. However, he is welcomed by an unseen voice who promises to befriend him, vowing to reveal itself to him in the morning.”
Performances are Friday and Saturdays, starting May 10-25. Tickets are $14.
