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.

There will be a Sensory Friendly performance on Friday, December 29 at 2PM.

Press Releases

Following previous seasons' holiday hits James and The Giant Peach, The Pirate Princess, and The Light Princess, American Repertory Theater's Institute for Advanced Theater Training at Harvard University presents Charlotte's Web, E.B. White's beloved children's classic about friendship and loyalty.
American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) at Harvard University, under the leadership of Artistic Director Diane Paulus and Executive Producer Diane Borger, announces dates of accessible programming in the 2017/18 Season. American Sign Language (ASL)-interpreted, open-captioned, audio-described, and sensory-friendly performances will be offered.
The American Repertory Theater Institute for Advanced Theater Training’s 2017/18 Season will include a new interpretation of a Shakespearean classic by an Obie Award-winning director; a beloved tale of friendship staged for the holiday season; an exploration of family ties by an acclaimed Boston-based playwright; a biting satire about our thirst for power; and a Pulitzer Prize-winning drama about the poignancy of everyday life.
The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) at Harvard University is pleased to announce its 2017/18 Season including Burn All Night, WARHOLCAPOTE, Sense and Sensibility, HEAR WORD! Naija Woman Talk True, The White Card, and Jagged Little Pill.
