I received this postcard in the mail a few weeks ago and it’s been sitting on my desk ever since. That’s “Some Pig”! So cute, I just had to get this on the blog as it was one of my favorite books as a kid and the movie was the first one ever to make me cry. The Two River Theater Co in Red Bank is presenting its annual family show this holiday season, Charlotte’s Web from December 11 to January 2. The play is based on the classic by E. B. White and adapted by Joseph Robinette.
Director Matt Pfeiffer: “I’m thrilled to be back at Two River Theater,” said Pfeiffer. “The family show at this theater is always a celebration of the holiday spirit: of family and friendship. With this highly accomplished cast and creative team, I look forward to celebrating this very special friendship—between Charlotte and Wilbur and all the characters in E. B.White’s world—with our audiences.”
