The Woodland Opera House will present the childhood favorite story of “Charlotte’s Web,” Feb. 14-23. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Fridays and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Based on the E.B White classic children’s book, this tale of perseverance and friendship comes to life onstage. A pig named Wilbur befriends Charlotte, the spider who lives in the corner of his barn. When Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered by the farmer, he and Charlotte spin a plan to save his life. Weaving miracles in her web, Charlotte writes, “some pig,” persuading the farmer to let Wilbur live.

The show is directed by Crissi Cairns Kessler. The cast includes Natalie Vogt as Fern, Terence O’Flaherty as John Arable, Jihan Moon as Avery, Matt Franck as Homer Zuckerman, Luke Crabbe as Lurvy and Uncle, Ryan Everitt as Wilbur, James Hayakawa as Templeton, Emily O’Flaherty as Charlotte, Erin Bruni as Goose, Jimin Moon as Gander, Bailey Robinson-Burmester as Sheep, Matt Crabbe as Narrator, Melissa Dahlberg as Reporter, Kevin Judson as President, Mary Dahlberg and Elizabeth Moon as spectators, and McKenna and Peyton Kessler as baby spider voices.

Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors 62 and older and $8 for children and youths 17 and younger. They are available online at www.woodlandoperahouse.org and by calling 530-666-9617. The show is recommended for all ages and is underwritten by Jennifer Goldman, D.D.S, and Amy Tran, D.D.S.
