From Page to Stage: Charlotte’s Web – A Reader’s Theater Workshop for Children

The Birmingham Public Library (BPL), in partnership with the Birmingham Children’s Theatre (BCT) and Junior League of Birmingham (JLB), invites you to attend From Page to Stage: Charlotte’s Web - A Readers’ Theater Workshop for Children.

In anticipation of the upcoming BCT performance of Charlotte’s Web, BPL will be hosting free workshops at several of its area libraries. Children, aged 7 to 12, will learn how stories come alive through the magic of theater. JLB members will coach the children and introduce them to similar literature located in their local library. Each child will receive two free tickets (one child and one adult ticket) to the BCT Charlotte’s Web production on April 6 or 7, 2019.

The farm gang is all here: Wilbur, the young pig with a zest for life; Fern, his first friend and savior; Templeton, the gluttonous rat; the Zuckermans; the Arables; and the extraordinary spider, Charlotte. When “Some Pig” mysteriously appears written in the web, Wilbur is given a second chance at life and a taste of fame. Based on the popular novel by E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web is a classic tale that shows us friends come in all shapes and sizes.
