Charlotte’s Web is based on E.B. White’s loving story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman. She will create a “miracle.” Spinning the words “Some Pig” in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig but also ensures his place on the farm forever.  

This treasured tale, featuring madcap and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love and the true meaning of friendship.

Columbia City Ballet presents Beauty and the Beast

Friday, March 27, 2020 – 9:30 and 11:15 a.m.

Columbia City Ballet Artistic Director William Starrett had the vision to develop curriculum-driven educational ballet performance experiences that would be accompanied by a teacher’s guide, choosing stories and topics that help our young people with today’s concerns and developmental needs.

However, these are not dress rehearsals that we open to the public; our productions are specially made each season to:

  • Provide a deep understanding of the art form of ballet
  • Enhance the lives of every patron in attendance
  • Educate the community at the highest level each season
  • Obtain a greater knowledge and appreciation of ballet
  • Leave you yearning to learn more about the performing arts in Columbia!

Performances last approximately an hour and include a Q&A. Performances are narrated so each student has a clear understanding of the story and can fully appreciate the professional ballet of the Columbia City Ballet.
