A Cold Chisel tribute show is coming to Gladstone.

Charlotte’s Web

The funny and touching story of Charlotte’s Web will delight children these school holidays at the Pilbeam Theatre and Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre.

The much-loved classic tale tells the story of hero Wilbur the Pig and his relationships and triumphs with friends Charlotte the Spider, Fern and farmyard characters Templeton the Rat, Sheep, Goose and Gander.

Charlotte’s Web stage production captures young hearts and inspires imaginations.

The enchanting story carries timely messages about valuing friendship, loyalty, accepting differences and living a full life.

Produced by Toowoomba-based RAVA Productions, Charlotte’s Web is a heart-warming children’s fable adapted by Joseph Robinette from the classic book by EB White.

RAVA Productions invited experienced and emerging artists with connections to Toowoomba to perform in Charlotte’s Web.

Actors include actor/musician Harrison Paroz (Pig Wilbur); actor Courtney Wagner (Fern, Goose); dancer/actor Jacob Watton (Templeton Rat); actor/teacher Mike Escobar (Sheep, Homer); Angela Pontin (Narrator, Gander) with singer/actor Sita Walker as the clever and beautiful spider, Charlotte.

Since 2019, this much-loved touring production, Charlotte’s Web has travelled more than 2500km captivating children in small regional Queensland centres from Dulacca to Esk.

On its latest tour, the team is travelling to larger centres and venues in North and Central Western Queensland to perform.

Charlotte’s Web is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
