Description:

This exciting, new musical version of Charlotte's Web brings a new dimension to E.B. White's beloved classic. With music and lyrics by Charles Strouse (Annie'Bye, 'Bye Birdie) and book by Joseph Robinette (national award-winning children's playwright) you will be thrilled by a musical score which includes "Eating," Wilbur the pig's humorous yet poignant song about growing up; "Who Says We Can't Be Friends," an enchanting duet between Wilbur and his new-found companion Charlotte; "Welcome to the Zuckerman Barn," featuring all the story's unforgettable animals in a hand-clapping, toe-tapping hoe-down; and "Summer," a haunting, nostalgic chorus number which evokes a time and place from everyone's childhood. This joyous musical offers you a very special experience.


CYT HOUSTON’S CHARLOTTE’S WEB
DIRECTOR’S VISION STATEMENT

Salutations!!  

“Charlotte’s Web”!  Say those two words to any adult, and there is a good chance you will hear, “I loved that book when I was a kid.” I am one of those adults.  It’s probably been decades since I read it, but now I love it even more.  

“Charlotte’s Web” is all about love, kindness, acceptance, and teamwork, which are guiding principles for my daily life.  My vision for our production of “Charlotte’s Web” is to showcase these principles in our cast through singing, dancing, and acting, while leaving it all on the stage for Christ.

At auditions, I want to see your character.  Just be you!  If you’re a comedian, be a comedian.  If you’re serious, be serious.  No accents or stereotypes.  I want to see you.

In my vision for the characters, I see beautiful animals because all of God’s creatures are beautiful.  All creatures, both big and small, are loved and accepted at Zuckerman’s Barn.  

All roles are open to ages 8-18. Fern is a young teen and her annoying little brother, Avery, just needs to appear and sound younger than her. Charlotte is the oldest and wisest character of all. She is elegant, graceful, and truly radiant. Although Wilbur is a boy pig, that role may be cast using a girl or a boy. 

I am so excited to be on this journey with you all.  I believe that together our CYT family will create Some Show!
See you at auditions!

-Ashley Petterson, Director
