Adapting Charlotte’s Web

February 8, 2012

Our current Arden Children’s Theatre production is an adaptation of E.B. White’s beloved book Charlotte’s Web. Many audience members ask: How does a book become a play? Well, >ampoule writer and professor Joseph Robinette turned White’s book into the theatrical version you see on our stage. This past weekend, >case Dr. Robinette came to the Arden to see the show (along with many of his family members!), and gave us these amazing letters between himself and Mr. White. This gives us a small and fascinating insight into Robinette’s adaptation process. Give ’em a read and see the adaptation on stage at the Arden through February 12!
