The Winterset Stage at the Iowa Theater will present “Charlotte’s Web” in mid-November, and tickets are on sale now. Bring the whole family!

​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.”

Tickets are available now for “Charlotte’s Web”, playing Nov. 14-16 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. All tickets are $15 on Nov 14-16. Thanks to the generosity of the Winterset Optimist and Rotary Clubs, tickets for children are just $5 at the matinee on Sunday, Nov 17.

Reserve your tickets now, and remember to use your discount code if you’re a Winterset Stage member
