The classic E.B. White story of Wilbur the pig and Charlotte the spider comes to life at Cardinal Stage in the production of “Charlotte’s Web,” running from Oct.18 to Nov. 3 at the Ivy Tech Waldron Auditorium.
The show runs for one hour and is appropriate for all ages. Tickets can be found on Cardinal Stage’s website and cost anywhere from $13.95 to $21.95.
The production features IU alumna Kate-Lyn Edwards as Charlotte and current students Caleb Curtis as Wilbur, Kenny Arnold II as Mr. Homer/Zuckerman and Brynn Jones as Goose/Gander.
“Charlotte’s Web” is about a girl named Fern who saves Wilbur the pig and their adventures together on the farm they live on. Wilbur then stumbles upon a spider named Charlotte and the story continues detailing their friendship.
Cardinal Stage has also included a sensory-friendly performance Nov. 3 where the theater experience is specifically accommodating to all families and friends with autistic children or other sensory sensitivities.
Accommodations include lowered sound levels, lower-leveled lighting, elimination of any strobe or flashing light sequences and fidgets. Noise cancelling devices are welcome. Patrons are also free to talk and leave their seats during the performance, and more space in the theater is provided.
