Audition Information

Sunday, January 22nd 2 - 4 p.m.

The Ritz Theatre 111 W. Third St., Sheffield

* Audition will concist of cold readings from the script, with roles for children an adults. Laura Connolly and Andrew Maples are directing.Adapted by Joseph Robinette. Based on the book by E.B. White.

* Cast: 5 to 7 men., 7 to 9 women with a flexible ensemble group. 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 and utterly practical 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; 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 your actors a great opportunity and your audience an evening of enchantment.
