Hope Summer Repertory Theatre's Children's Performance Troupe is adding two additional performances of the popular Charlotte's Web on Thursday, August 13th at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

Charlotte's Web based on the book by E.B. White, first published in 1952, opening July 15th.  It is a funny and touching story of loyalty, trust, and sacrifice.  Lovable characters such as Wilbur the pig, Templeton the rat, and Charlotte the spider will teach the audience about always seeking the best in others and the power of true friendship.  Seen as classic children's literature, this show will be sure to please young and old alike.
