Children's Theatre

Charlotte’s Web kicks off 2023

Our first Children’s Theatre production of 2023 is Charlotte’s Web, presented by Happy State Bank and sponsored by Frank Kent Cadillac. The play is based on E.B. White’s beloved classic book, and runs February 4-19. Tickets are on sale now.

Join Charlotte and your favorite pig Wilbur as they explore life in the barnyard! Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer,” is determined to save Wilbur. She begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some pig.” It’s the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This show is suitable for all audiences.

Charlotte’s Web stars Alli Franken as “Wilbur,” Amber Marie Flores as “Charlotte” and Emma Grace Freeman as “Fern Arable.” Additional cast members include Will Stotts, Nina Auburn and Hunter Hall. David Coffee joins the cast as “Homer Zuckerman.” Additional cast includes Laurel Collins, Keith J. Warren, Jordynn Mann, Rachel Rice and Jacob Clemmons.

Penny Ayn Maas is directing. Maas has worked as a professional actress, singer, and dancer in New York City for over 20 years. She teaches Musical Theatre Performance and Dance at Texas Christian University and is a proud member of AEA, SAG/AFTRA and an Associate Member of SDC. Additional creative staff includes Bob Lavallee as scenic designer, Virginia LaChance as lighting designer, Allan Branson as sound designer, Tammy Spencer as costume designer and Cat Petty-Rogers as hair and makeup designer.

Ticket prices start at $19. Tickets are also available online and at the Casa Mañana Theatre Box Office, 3101 West Lancaster Avenue in Fort Worth.
