Announcing Auditions for Charlotte’s Web

December 16-17, 2018

Adapted by Joseph Robinette
Based on the book by E.B. White

The Merc Playhouse is calling all young thespians ages eight and up. The Tom Zbyszewski Children’s Theater at The Merc Playhouse announces auditions for the beloved children’s classic, Charlotte’s Web.

Director Jane Orme will be auditioning parts for all of the characters recalled from the story: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and of course, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte.

A beautiful play about friendship, Charlotte’s Web will give young actors an enriching opportunity on The Merc stage. No experience and no prepared readings necessary. Must be eight years old on or before December 16, 2018, in order to audition. Pages of script will be handed out at auditions. Bring your calendar to auditions and be prepared to list rehearsal conflicts. Rehearsals begin in early January and performances run March 15-24.

AUDITION DATES: Dec 16, 6:30pm; Dec 17, 4pm. LOCATION: The Merc Playhouse, Twisp, WA. INFO: 509-997-7529 or email
