Intense emotions, peer pressure, making friends, fears of being alone, perfectionism, and worries about the future. Teen anxiety can take many shapes and can have a huge impact on the everyday life of a young person. It is time to talk about it.

Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollman and Greg Kotis
Performed by the Musical Theatre Troupe
Directed by Andy Toth
In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he has had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

The story about an irresistible young pig named Wilbur; a girl, Fern, who understands what animals say to each other; a rat, Templeton, a gluttonous character who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family, the Arables, the animals, and, most of all, an 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 beautiful, knowing play about friendship will enchant audiences of all ages.
