Rochester Association of Performing Arts Family Theatre will perform Joseph Robinette’s adaptation of “Charlotte’s Web” at 7 p.m. May 26, 11 a.m. May 27 and 2 p.m. May 27-28 at Kodak Center, 200 W. Ridge Road, Rochester.
The story originally by E.B. White revolves around Wilbur, a runt pig in a new litter. When Fern, a young girl, befriends the little piglet, her parents agree to let her look after him at her Uncle Homer’s farm.
Since the animals on the farm can talk to one another when the humans aren’t around, Wilbur discovers a hard lesson about his life on the farm. Luckily, Charlotte, a friendly spider, takes pity on Wilbur and thinks of an idea to save him.
The friendship that a spider forms with a pig is at the heart of the tale, but Charlotte and Wilbur are also complex characters. White puts them in life and death situations in this story of friendship, hope and bravery.
The professional adult and youth cast features many returning actors from RAPA’s original production in 2016 along with new cast members. The production will tour area schools and includes puppets created by Alexandra Herryman.
Audience members can meet the characters after each show.
Tickets cost $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and students and $10 for ages 12 and younger.
