The sold out show's director, Shelly Tolliver, says the core of the story is about friendship and being able to make a friend no matter what the differences are. She says the lessons in Charlotte's Web are what really bring the story to life.
"You look everywhere in today's world and everybody is locked in their own little bubbles. If people would step out of themselves just a little bit and meet people and somebody new, they can make a friend. So this is an opportunity to let the kids know how to make a friend," said Shelly Tolliver.
The cast of Charlotte's Web has been practicing for about a month and a half to prepare for the show and are local residents in and around Zanesville, including Duncan Falls, Philo, Crooksville and Trinway. The Zane Trace Players will be holding auditions for their next performance called, "A Streetcar Named Desire," and auditions are open to anyone that is interested.
"We have you read from the script, or if it's a musical, we have you sing, just to get an introduction for you a little bit, and then we cast from there."
The Zane Trace Players will be performing Charlotte's Web next weekend as well and you can make reservations by giving them a call at 740-453-8481
