CHARLOTTE'S WEB

A Musical, from the book by E.B. WHITE
Dramatized by JOSPH ROBINETTE
Music by RONNA FRANK
Lyrics by JOSPH ROBINETTE and RONNA FRANK
Directed by Daniel Geddes

Charlotte is spinning her magic web at NCT.

Join National Children's Theatre (NCT) for the heart-warming story of Charlotte's Web adapted by Joseph Robinette from the beloved novel by E.B. White. This popular musical is a thrilling presentation based on what has been named the best American Children's book of the past 200 years by the Children Literature Association and is on the recommended reading list for schools. Charlotte's Web will come to life at NCT from 28 August 2018, directed  by Daniel Geddes.

Come and celebrate the true meaning of friendship with Wilbur - the irresistible young pig, Fern - a young girl who loves Wilbur and understands the language of animals, Templeton - the gluttonous rat, and most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte - who proves to be a true friend, and a good writer.

This popular tale, takes audiences to Zuckerman's farm, where Wilbur finds out he is on a course to meet the butcher and land up at the dinner table - as the main course, not the guest. The remarkable crafty spider, Charlotte, and her friends rescue Wilbur and the whole town begins talking. "Some pig" indeed!

There are moments of humour, moments of joy, and the harmonies are pure pleasure in this joyous tale of unexpected friendship, and the natural cycle of life.

This delightful musical is a "must see" experience for the whole family - a theatrical treat, presented with honesty and directness, while at the same time entertaining with a beautiful message and is dedicated to Francois Theron our former Artistic Director. Like Charlotte, he is no longer with us but in the same way that Charlotte's children live on, Francois reach extends to the thousands of children who loved and enjoyed his show.
