Charlotte’s Web comes to vivid life in this enchanting stage adaptation by Greg King of KickstArt.  This is heart-warming family entertainment that is perfect for the holidays.

Starring Mthokozisi Zulu, Belinda Henwood, Lyle Buxton, Cara Roberts, Straw Nzimande and Bryan Hiles, Charlotte's Web tells the tale of Wilbur, a prize-winning piglet and his unique friendship with an extraordinary barn spider, named Charlotte. When Wilbur is in danger, Charlotte helps him by writing messages in her web.  Considered a classic in children’s literature and enjoyed by adults as well as children,  Publishers Weekly listed Charlotte's Web in 2000 as the bestselling children’s paperback of all time!

The original story was illustrated with beautifully rendered, now iconic artwork by Garth Williams, which inspired the animated feature in 1973, and a live action film version of the original story which was released in 2006. There is also a popular video game based on this adaptation.  The story was apparently inspired by White’s encounter with a real pig which he unsuccessfully attempted to save.  He also met a real spider, whom he called Charlotte Epeira, who was immortalised as the heroine of his novel. The farmyard and barn where the story is set, has been kept off limits to the public according to the wishes of the author.
