The Island Now
Charlotte's Web from Theatreworks USA

Wilbur is a terrific pig – and his spider friend Charlotte is going to use her spinning talent to tell the world and help Wilbur avoid becoming pork chops! Theatreworks USA presents the timeless story of friendship in this production at 2:00 p.m. on May 12 on the Westermann Stage, Concert Hall in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center, 1 South Ave in Garden City.

This production is recommended for children in grades K-5 and their families.

Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman — she will create a “miracle.”

Spinning the words “Some Pig” in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig, but also ensures his place on the farm forever. This treasured tale, featuring mad-cap and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love, and the true meaning of friendship.
