Raleigh Little Theatre will wrap up this season's youth series with a stage adaptation of E.B. White's classic "Charlotte's Web."
The show opens Friday and runs through April 17 in the Cantey V. Sutton Theatre, which is near Cameron Village in Raleigh and right next to the beautiful Raleigh Rose Garden.
“It’s humbling to work on a piece that is considered a classic in children’s literature, as the story, and its timeless message of what it means to be a friend, resonates with so many people," said Nikki Dyke, founder and director of Clayton Youth Theater, who will make her RLT directorial debut with this show. "For some in the audience, it will be their first experience with the theater and I’m honored to have a hand in introducing E.B. White's story to a new generation of children.
Tickets are $14 and $10 for adults 12 and under. Tickets for all events at RLT can be purchased by calling the box office at 919-821-3111, Monday through Friday, noon to 5:00 p.m., or by visiting the theatre’s website.
