Maranoa Regional Council invites residents to enjoy an afternoon of storytelling through the performance of Charlotte’s Web produced by RAVA Productions on Saturday, 24 July 2021 at the Roma Cultural Centre.
Charlotte’s Web is an enchanting children’s favourite, based on the beloved book by E.B. White. Our hero, a little pig named Wilbur, braves his new world forming friendships and warming hearts through his adventures, learns about life and death, miracles, loyalty and trust.
Create an extra special afternoon by bringing along your bean bag for ultimate relaxation while being entangled in Charlotte’s Web. The show will run for approximately 60 minutes and is suitable for families and children age between 4 to 12 years.
General Admission will be $10 per person (children under 3 are free). Tickets must be pre-purchased and be presented at time of arrival and guests are to be seated by 1.45pm for the show to start at 2pm. Due to COVID restrictions, seating will be assigned.
This tour of Charlotte’s Web is supported by The Playing Queensland Fund and arTour, initiatives of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
By Arrangement with ORiGiN™ Theatrical, Exclusive Representatives of the Dramatic Publishing Company
