Unicorn’s “Charlotte’s Web” is a delightful musical about a spider and a pig
The book “Charlotte’s Web”, about a spider who saves a pig’s life, is one of the most popular children’s books of all time. Now Unicorn Theatre is bringing to the stage a delightful musical that beautifully tells the story of Charlotte the spider and Wilbur the pig that has been loved by many generations of children – and even some adults, too.
A charming script by award-winning author Joseph Robinette and some terrific songs help the stellar cast to bring to life the familiar tale of how Charlotte, the clever spider, weaves some interesting words into her web to save her friend Wilbur the pig from being turned into ham and bacon when the cold weather comes.
The show opens at the Bay Community Centre on November 22, and continues on November 23, 24, 29, 30 and December 1. Friday shows are at 7.30 pm, and Saturday/Sunday shows are at 3.00 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children, students and seniors. Reservations may be made online at www.unicorntheatre.ca.
