Chin up!  After a restless first night in the Zuckerman family barn, a wide-eyed young pig named Wilbur meets a witty and resourceful spider named Charlotte.  When Wilbur learns through his fellow barnyard creatures of some unsettling plans for his future, Charlotte takes it upon her spinnerets and her trusty web to save him.  Directed by award-winning Northwestern faculty member Mary Poole, this magical tale of what it means to be a good writer and a good friend features the much-loved characters created by E.B. White.

Back by popular demand, THE HUNDRED DRESSES returns to the Wallis Theater for an encore summer engagement following its successful sold out run this past fall. Wanda Petronski -- the new girl at school -- claims to have 100 beautiful dresses at home – despite wearing the same faded blue dress every day. Classmate Maddie Martin joins the rest of the kids at the elementary school in teasing Wanda for speaking strangely, having a funny last name and living in the wrong part of town. When the teasing gets out of hand, Maddie is faced with a tough decision. 

THE HUNDRED DRESSES is published by Harcourt Children’s Books, an imprint of Houghton Muffin Publishing Company.

Tickets: $10 general public
