A beguiling new musical version of E.B. White's beloved classic story about Wilbur, the little pig who becomes famous with the help of his clever spider friend Charlotte. With music and lyrics by Broadway composer Charles Strouse (Annie, Bye Bye Birdie) and a book by national award-winning children's playwright Joseph Robinette, audiences will thrill to a musical score which includes "Eating," Wilbur's humorous yet poignant song about growing up; "Who Says We Can't Be Friends?," an enchanting duet between Wilbur and Charlotte; "Welcome to the Zuckerman Barn," featuring all the story's unforgettable animals in a hand-clapping, toe-tapping hoe-down; and "Summer," a haunting, nostalgic chorus number which evokes a time and place from everyone's childhood. With its lessons of friendship, loyalty, and truth, Charlotte's Web is a gift for audiences of all ages.
