COLDWATER – When a pig and a spider form an unlikely but heartwarming friendship it’s easy to see why “Charlotte’s Web” became an all time family favorite tale.
“Charlotte’s Web is the third Popcorn Theatre play for the 2012 summer season presented for children by Tibbits Summer Theatre. It’s the heartwarming story of the enduring friendship between a rambunctious pig named Wilbur and the wise spider Charlotte created under the direction of Daniel Janes.
To make Popcorn Theatre even more special, children are invited to meet the cast following the show for pictures and autographs. Professional cast members include: Altamiece’ Carolyn Ballard-Cooper playing Charlotte, Paul Warren Smith as Wilbur, Matt Haupert as Templeton, Amy Lamberti as Fern and T. Chad Henke as the narrator. Coldwater resident Alex Marshall will play the role of Homer. The actors for Tibbits Summer Theatre come to Coldwater from across the United States; this year 12 different states are represented.
