Come out to audition for the stage version of the classic story of friendship, named by The Children's Literature Association, "the best American children's book of the past two hundred years".

Please bring a list of conflicts for rehearsals. Rehearsals will be held four (4) nights a week for leads. Conflicts can determine casting!
Resume and headshots are welcome, by not required. If no headshot is provided, please be prepared to have your picture made for casting purposes.

Cast of characters:


Fern Arable (9+) - young girl who has a love for animals. She seems to grow up right before us during the course of the play. She’s a natural caretaker and Wilbur’s savior

John Arable (12+) - Fern’s father. Softhearted, but firm.

Martha Arable (12+) - Fern’s mother. A bit of a worrywart.

Avery Arable (9+) - Fern’s older brother. If he were my older brother, I might want to run away from home! Rambunctious, dirty, stereotypical rough farm boy.


Homer Zuckerman (12+) - Fern’s uncle who helps publicize Charlotte’s work.

Edith Zuckerman (12+) -  Fern’s aunt.

Lurvy (12+) - Hardworking farmhand on Zuckerman’s farm.

Wilbur (9+): Pig was the runt of his litter who was destined to be bacon until Fern stepped in to take care of him. Naïve, panicky, but a great friend to Charlotte. Large line load/lead role, should be very animated.

Templeton (9+) -  Rat – rude, mean, selfish.


Charlotte (12+) - common barn spider, Wilbur’s best friend who goes to unspeakable lengths to save him. Large line load/lead.

Goose, Gander, Sheep, Lamb (9+) - not very nice to Wilbur, small, but important roles.

Uncle (9+): large pig encountered at the fair. Small cameo.

Additional farm animals/fair attendees/reporters (9+): as dictated by audition attendance.

Chorus members (9+): Serve as narrators.

Note: Charlotte will need to either be experienced with dance/movement, or be willing to be coached in that respect.

Since this production is all youth, there will be numerous ways to participate as a member of the crew if being backstage is your calling. Please join us during audition times to show your interest!
