Scottsdale, Ariz. (Feb. 18, 2014)  Desert Stages Theatre presents the heartwarming Gerry Cullity original Charlotte’s Web, Fri., Feb. 21 – Sun., March 30.


This On Stage production shares the tale of a very special friendship between a “radiant” pig named Wilbur and a young girl named Fern. But when Wilbur’s fate is in jeopardy it’s a wise and heroic spider named Charlotte who saves him.  A cast of lovable barnyard characters add the perfect mix of fun in this Gerry Cullity adaptation of the age-old popular children’s story.
