About the Show: The Children’s Literature Association named this “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling theatrical presentation. All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some pig.”

The second production is The Pirate Show by Mark Landon Smith. Rehearsals are June 7- July 9. No rehearsal on July 4th. Performance dates are July 10 – July 26, 2012.

About the Show: The Pirate Show is a family oriented comedy adventure on the high seas with swashbuckling pirates, sea battles, buried treasure and pygmies. Orphaned siblings, Nigel and Virginia , are living under the cruel Miss Persimmon Crudmudgeon. Fed up with their life, the brother and sister flee. Nigel and Virginia hide in pier side barrels, but they are separated as the all-female crew of the Pretty Penelope and the all-male crew of El Bandido Loco accidentally kidnap them. Both crews are in pursuit of the treasure of Captain Mauvebeard and the Caribbean Ruby, buried on Pygmy Island. Great fun for all!
