Charlotte's Web - Postponed

Statement on COVID-19:

Due to the rapidly evolving spread of the COVID-19 illness, McCoy's Grand Theatre has made the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming production of Charlotte's Web. While we are sad to press 'Pause' on our latest show, the concern for the health and safety of our actors, patrons, and the community takes top priority. Online and outlet ticket sales are currently suspended while we evaluate and attempt to maneuver this unprecedented situation. We will, immediately, be issuing refunds to those who made online ticket purchases.

Once a decision is made about when the production will resume, the public will be notified with updated information. Please stay tuned to our social media channels for up to date information on upcoming shows and events. Thank you for your patience, continued patronage, and help keeping the theatrical arts alive!

“Charlotte's Web”

After young Fern Arable pleads for the life of a “runt of the litter” piglet, her father gives it to her to nurture. She names the lively piglet Wilbur. Fern treats Wilbur as a pet, but a month later, no longer small, Wilbur is sold to Fern's uncle, Homer Zuckerman. In Zuckerman's barnyard Wilbur yearns for companionship but is snubbed by the other animals. He is befriended by a barn spider named Charlotte, whose web sits in a doorway overlooking Wilbur's enclosure. When Wilbur discovers that he is being raised for slaughter, Charlotte promises to hatch a plan that is guaranteed to spare his life. As the summer passes, Charlotte ponders the question of how to save Wilbur. At last, she comes up with a plan, which she sets about implementing. Reasoning that Zuckerman would not kill a famous pig, Charlotte begins to praise Wilbur with words she weaves into her web. The spider’s miraculous word weaving results in making the Zuckerman barn, and its evermore famous pig, a popular tourist attraction. Thanks to Charlotte’s genius plan, Wilbur finally arrives at the fair to compete for the prized blue ribbon. Will the wise spider’s scheme be enough to save her friend Wilbur and, even if it is, will she live long enough to see fruits of her labors?

The shows will be held at McCoy’s Grand Theater, Main Street Moorefield, at 7:30 pm on April 17, 18, 24 and 25 and at 2:00 pm on April 19, 25 and 26. Tickets will be available at the box office 30 minutes prior to the show.
