The children’s classic “Charlotte’s Web” came to life last fall thanks to a large and talented cast, a flexible and changing set and lighting and fanciful costumes.
The production, under the direction of Megan Westhoff, played to full houses for five performances in the Bicknell Center’s Miller Theater.
Linden Little, who was in charge of set and lighting design, said one of the key factors he took into consideration in designing the set was the need for quick transformations.
“We actually had three barns,” Little said. “They turned, spun and flipped. Everything had to be quick.”
The sets took the audience from Zukerman’s farm to the county fair, with stops in a child’s bedroom in between.
Turning the cast of 20 humans into barnyard animals, including Wilbur the pig and Charlotte the spider, depended on the talents of Lisa Quinteros, who was in charge of costume and makeup design.
