Starting on Friday, Oct. 19 and 20, Lake Central Theatre will begin performing Charlotte’s web.  Performances will take place in the auditorium at 7 p.m.

“We started preparing at the end of August. I play the goose. I am excited because this is the first time I have had a speaking role in a show,” Adriana Klein (11) said.

In addition to their weekend performances, the theatre company will showcase the play for elementary school students on Oct. 23 and 24. different schools in the district will watch the play for the book they are reading in class.

“One Book, One District is basically where all of the elementary schools read one book. This year it is Charlotte’s web. We work on making that a play for them so  they can come see it and have a visual representation. My favorite part is getting to work with all these great people,” Kelly Koester (12) said.

This experience allows young readers to understand the material in which they are learning in the classroom to come to life outside of it.

“I am the gander who is the goose’s husband.  I love my costume and the set and the barn. It is really exciting because we get to preform for all of the kids in elementary school and because it is free, every kid can go. It is nice because we aren’t really excluding anyone,” Kaylie Katsiris (12) said.
