Charlotte's Web (Outdoor Children's Theatre)

University College :: August 10, 2013 - August 18, 2013

The quintessential story of growing up & finding beauty in the simplicity of everyday living.

The story follows the loveable pig, Wilbur, the runt of his litter who is saved from an untimely fate by his owner's daughter, Fern Arable.

When Wilbur gets too big for the Arable farm, Fern helps him adjust to his new home at her uncle's farm down the road.

Wilbur's charisma effortlessly leads him to make new friends at the Zuckerman farm who share with him the facts of life of a pig.

Spiralling into sadness from his impending demise he makes an unlikely friendship with an enchanting spider, Charlotte, who vows to save him in the most extraordinary fashion.

This play, based on the beloved children's novel of the same name, explores the timeless themes of friendship, loyalty, selflessness, love, and loss.
