Created by Wayne Daigrepont for the inagural production of Rivertown Repertory Theatre's Imagine Theatre for Children. Based on the original story by E. B. White, dramatized by Joseph Robinette, and original musical arrangements by Daigrepont.

Wilber the pig (voiced by Bryan Wagar), is a special pig, a very special pig indeed. Raised on the Arable Farm, their youngest daughter Fern (Soline McLain) takes a liking to the piglet, as does an erudite spider named Charlotte (voiced by Kerry Mendelson). Words begin appearing in Charlotte's Web which refer to Wilbur, and soon he is off to the county fair with Fern and Homer Zuckerman (Vatican Lokey).
