The Jackson Children’s Theater will be performing “Charlotte’s Web” on July 24 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. and a matinee performance on July 24 at 2 p.m. at the Ned R. McWherter West Tennessee Cultural Arts Center. A beautiful play about friendship, it includes all the enchanting characters: 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 good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some Pig.” Matinee tickets are $5 in advance and $6 the day of the show. Evening performances are $8 in advance and $9 the day of the show. Tickets are being sold at the Civic Center Box Office. For more information, call 425-8587. Published in The Messenger 7.15.08
