Everyone’s  favorite pig joins his farmyard friends to weave an unbelievable tale  in this heartwarming stage adaptation of the beloved E. B. White book.  When Wilbur the pig’s trip to the butcher seems imminent, a clever and  skillful spider named Charlotte becomes determined to save him with  “radiant” and “terrific” messages displayed in her web. This poignant  and delightful play about friendship and bravery will remind us all  about the miracle often found in the simplest of things.

contains activities that are tied-in to the production. All activities are linked to SC College- and Career-Ready Standards. You are encouraged to use this companion and hope that it will help spark great discussion and activity with your students before and after the production.


  • Wilbur is called a “weakling”.
  • Animals use the word “kill,” stating that the Zuckermans want to kill Wilbur for food
  • Templeton calls Wilbur’s name “tacky.”
  • Wilbur uses the words “guns” and “knives” when he thinks the Zuckermans want to kill him
  • It is implied Wilbur will be turned into bacon or ham.
  • The word “fat” is used towards Wilbur and the judges.
  • Charlotte  implies that she is dying with phrases like “It is the last word I  shall ever write”, “I won’t ever see my children”, “In a day or two,  I’ll be dead”

Themes and Situations:

  • Friendship
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Many of the scenes center around wanting to save Wilbur from being killed or sold by the Zuckermans
  • Mentions and instances of death with the goslings and Charlotte

Potential Scary Moments:

  • Mild onstage scuffle between Avery and Fern
  • Charlotte  passes away at the end of the play; Charlotte waves goodbye to Wilbur  and returns to her web and no longer moves as she has passed
  • Charlotte is a spider and at one point mimes eating a bug

Other Cautions/Advisories:

  • Avery is shown carrying an air rifle and a wooden dagger
  • Templeton makes a gesture across his neck insinuating that Wilbur will be killed
  • Gander  shows that one of his eggs was a “dud” and wasn’t able to hatch.  Templeton asks to keep it, and it later gets broken by Avery and Fern

NEED A PLACE TO EAT LUNCH AFTER THE SHOW? Weather permitting, Barnet Park, right beside the Chapman Cultural Center, is an excellent place to take your child to eat their own bag lunches and play with other homeschoolers.
