About The Class
The OSHKids Performance Company at The Alsedek Theatre School is celebrating 20 years as Harrisburg's premiere training program for young artists!
Designed for students of all experience levels, the OSHKids is a fun and challenging class that provides training in acting, auditioning, voice and movement, which culminates in a fully staged production of Charlotte's Web in the Spring of 2023. Over the course of eight months, students study and explore unique theatrical techniques and study the history and discipline of the theatre, building their teamwork and communication skills, all while making friends and incredible memories along the way.
About Charlotte's Web
Adapted by Joseph Robinette. Based on the book by E.B. White.
The Children's Literature Association named this "the best American children's book of the past two hundred years," and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling and utterly practical theatrical presentation. The costumes and unit set may be simple or as colorful and elaborate as you wish; it's the story and relationships that make the show. All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the "miracle" of her web in which she writes, "Some pig." It's the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that will give your actors a great opportunity and your audience an evening of enchantment.
