Stanwood High School will present “Charlotte’s Web” for two Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 8-9 and Nov. 15-16, at the Stanwood High Performing Arts Center.
The play, based on the beloved children’s story by E.B. White, is about the famous friendship between a pig named Wilbur and the tiny spider named Charlotte.
By magically spinning words into her webs, Charlotte tries to fool Farmer Zuckerman to save Wilbur from the butcher knife.
Leading the cast of this family-friendly drama are SHS students Judith Cunningham as Charlotte and Chandler Long as Wilbur.
Both students have been involved in local theater for many years and plan to continue studying acting in college.
Cunningham said she is pleased with how her fellow drama students have worked together.
“I enjoy the cast family Mr. Sims (director) has created and the energy that it has brought to the performances,” she said.
Long said he is excited for the production.
“Everybody in the cast is really nice, and they all seem to have a passion for acting which creates an amazing atmosphere,” he said.
Director Ken Sims, Stanwood High drama teacher, said the play is perfect for area families.
“Charlotte’s Web is a wonderful play for families because children enjoy it, and parents love it because they remember reading it when they were kids,” he said.
Tickets, at the door, cost $9 for adults and $8 for students at the Stanwood High School Performing Arts Center, 7400 272nd St. NW, Stanwood. For information, call 360-629-1300.
