A.R.T. invites families with members who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder or other sensory sensitivities to a special performance of Charlotte's Web.
Adapted by Joseph Robinette • Based on the story by E.B. White • Directed by Dmitry Troyanovsky
On the Arable family farm, a miracle is about to happen. In order to save young Wilbur from the butcher, Charlotte—a very special spider—hatches a plan to show the world how “radiant” one pig can be in the eyes of a true friend. Adapted from E.B. White’s beloved children’s classic and directed by A.R.T. Institute alumnus Dmitry Troyanovsky ('00), (James and the Giant Peach), Charlotte’s Web will feature graduate students from the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training Class of 2018. Click here for more information about the production.
