The story follows the life of Wilbur the pig, who is adopted by the farmer’s daughter, Fern. When Wilbur is moved to his new life, on the Zuckerman farm, he meets a new group of barnyard friends, including Charlotte the spider. Wilbur soon learns that pigs are not meant to live forever on a farm. Charlotte, meanwhile, enlists the help of her friends to save Wilbur from slaughter. She weaves words in her web to bring attention to the radiant and humble pig. Through the journey, all of the characters learn the importance of friendship.

Children, who are ages eight and under, may dress as their favorite animal or farm character to be granted free admission into the play.
