The 2011-2012 Mitchell Performing Arts Series at The College of St. Scholastica will conclude with a performance for young audiences. Theatreworks' production of "Charlotte's Web" is at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 17, in the Mitchell Auditorium. All tickets are $5.
E.B. White's classic story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte is appropriate for kindergarten through fifth-grade students.
As the story unfolds, Wilbur realizes he has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops. Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, develops a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman - she will create a so-called miracle. By spinning the words "Some Pig" in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution that not only makes Wilbur a prize pig, but ensures his place on the farm forever. This treasured tale, featuring endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love and the true meaning of friendship.
