The children’s classic, Charlotte’s Web, will soon come to life on stage in musical form at the Warehouse Living Arts Center, but first they need a cast! Being a Warehouse Youth Theatre Company production, they will be looking for youth from 5 to 18 years old. Directed by David Hill, Music Direction by Shelia Herod.
This exciting, musical version of Charlotte’s Web brings a new dimension to E.B. White’s beloved classic. With music and lyrics by Charles Strouse (Annie, ‘Bye, ‘Bye Birdie) and book by Joseph Robinette (national award-winning children’s playwright) your audiences will thrill to a musical score which includes “Eating,” Wilbur the pig’s humorous yet poignant song about growing up; “Who Says We Can’t Be Friends,” an enchanting duet between Wilbur and his new-found companion Charlotte; “Welcome to the Zuckerman Barn,” featuring all the story’s unforgettable animals in a hand-clapping, toe-tapping hoe-down; and “Summer,” a haunting, nostalgic chorus number which evokes a time and place from everyone’s childhood.
Please have your child prepare a musical theatre or Disney style song with accompaniment. The song should be no longer than 1 minute. Your accompaniment music should not include vocal tracks (karaoke style). Please, nothing a cappella (bring music to sing to). A cord to plug into phone or computer & speaker will be available.
