After more than a year without live family entertainment, Kickstart Theatre Company’s charming retelling of the evergreen children’s classic by E.B. White comes to Durban’s Botanic Gardens Amphitheatre for a limited run this Easter! First presented in 2019, the show has been adapted for an outdoor setting, ideal for family picnics and a Covid-responsible theatre experience for all ages.
Charlotte’s Web tells the story of Wilbur, a cute, plucky piglet, who is rescued and hand-raised by a little girl named Fern. When Wilbur is sent to live on the Zuckerman’s farm in a barn full of delightful animal characters, he be-friends a spider named Charlotte, who must use all her cunning to outwit the local farming community and save Wilbur’s life!
Presented on a colourful set by Greg King, with a marvelous mix of puppets, theatrical magic, and a cast of well-loved KZN actors, this play for young audiences is the perfect Easter treat for all ages.
