Theatre for Young Audiences (or TYA) includes any performance taking place in the presence of young audiences—consisting of, but not limited to—theatre, dance, music, puppetry, circus and physical theatre.
MCT’s annual TYA performance celebrates Arts in Education Week by inviting your whole family to experience our company of professional adult actors presenting this production for all ages.
All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; and, most of all, the 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.

In July of 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution designating the second week of September as “Arts in Education Week.” Congress designated Arts in Education Week to promote and showcase the immense role arts education has in producing engaged, successful, and college and career-ready students. MCT is proud to join arts organization across America to celebrate this special week!
