Charlotte's Web

By E.B. White

Directed by Xan Johnson

Some Pig! Named “the best American children’s book of the past 200 years” by the Children’s Literature Association, Charlotte’s Web is a tale of perseverance, miraculous feats and the never-ending cycle of life. This classic story of Charlotte, the extraordinary spider who saves the irresistible young pig Wilbur, is woven throughout with elements of Native American culture, music, and storytelling. Set in southern Wisconsin in 1953, and true to the original novel with all of the timeless characters and scenes - it’s “Some Play!”
