Students going into 3-5th grade in the fall of 2021 will study the Eric Litwin's “Pete the Cat” series and create their own scene and script. We will work on creative expression, sharing emotions and ideas through dialog, stage directions, stage presence, projection and other dramatic skills throughout the week with fun games and activities. Space is limited to 24 students.
August 13, 14, & 15, 2021 (Fri, Sat, Sun*)
Grand Opera House, Pierre, SD
Auditions: June 27, 2021 at 2:00 pm. There are roles for 5 to 7 males, 7 to 9 females, with a flexible ensemble group. Casting will include 3rd through 12th grades.
All the enchanting characters will be there: 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; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; 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." It's the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte.
This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that will give actors a great opportunity and an audience an evening of enchantment.
