The Grand Meadow Heritage Players will present the classic Children's play "Charlotte's Web" on the weekend of Sept. 12 -13, as part of the Grand Meadow Festival.
A tale to tell -
The Heritage Center children's theater production Charlotte's Web is admirably narrated by Kyler Steffens and Alyssa Trapp.
Spare this pig!
John and Martha Arable (Roman Galles and Paige Korver) are determined to put an end to the runt of a litter of pigs recently born on their farm. Fortunately, their daughter Fern (Taylor Anstine) steps in to put a stop to the pig's impending doom, inadvertently launching Wilbur's (Grace Galles) transformation from run-of-the-swill swine to a pig of exceptional attributes. It's all part of the Heritage Center's "Charlotte's Web" which will be staged at this year's Heritage Days Festival
Hiding Wilbur -
When Farmer Zuckerman decides to send Wilbur (Grace Galles) on a one-way trip to the butcher shop, all the pig's barnyard buddies... Lamb (Kaylee Campbell,) Gander (Kendra Johnson,) Templeton the rat (Kyle Roepke,) Sheep (Amanda Klaschen) and Goose (Rachel Stewart) all pitch in to help hide him out. It's just one of the many lively scenes found in the Heritage Center's Charlotte's Web.
Good for what ails you -
Homer Zuckerman (Michael Nafe) and his hired hand Lurvy (Kiley Klaschen) have their work cut out for them when it comes time to give Wilbur (Grace Galles) a dose of medicine.
Pet project -
After saving the sickly pig Wilbur (Grace Galles) from an early end, Fern Arable (Taylor Anstine) dishes out plenty of TLC and soon has her pet hale, healthy and hitting on all oinkers.
Charlotte's web site --
Wilbur the pig (Grace Galles) triumphs over adversity with some sage advice and help from Charlotte the spider (McKenze Carlson.) It's all part of the plot line of the GM Heritage Center's production "Charlotte's Web." The children's theater play will be presented at the Heritage Center's Old Barn on Sept. 12 and 13.
An exceptional pig -
With Charlotte's help and advice, Wilbur (Grace Galles) becomes a celebrity. In fact, as far as John and Martha Arable (Roman Galles and Paige Korver) and Homer and Edith Zuckerman (Michael Nafe and Trina Stewart) are concerned, Wilbur is definitely an exceptional pig.
Saying good-bye -
A bittersweet moment occurs late in the Heritage Center's production Charlotte's Web when Wilbur (Grace Galles) must bid Charlotte (McKenze Carlson) a final good-bye.
Charlotte's children --
The Heritage Center's play 'Charlotte's Web' ends on a high note when the late sage spider Charlotte's children hatch out and drop in to visit with Wilbur (Grace Galles.)
Charlotte's Web to be presented -
Charlotte the Spider (McKenze Carlson) and Templeton the Rat (Kyle Roepke) discuss Wilbur's predicament. It's just one of the enchanting scenes found in the Grand Meadow Heritage Players' production of "Charlotte's Web." The children's theater presentation will be one of the attractions taking place at this year's GMH Days Festival taking place on Sept. 12 and 13.
