August 13, 14, & 15, 2021 (Fri, Sat, Sun*)
Grand Opera House, Pierre, SD
Auditions: Date TBD. 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.
