Theatre Review Of Charlotte’s Web: Expressions Theatre Festival0
I love supporting local theatre, especially when it is the the young actors of Vancouver’s Arts Umbrella. We went to see the classic Charlotte’s Web which was put on as part of the Expressions Theatre Festival over on Granville Island. I took my own 8 year old son, my 9 year old nephew and 13 year old niece to the performance.
All of us that went had previously read Charlotte’s Web by E.B White and so everyone was already well versed on the storyline. There were lots of questions about how the actors would play a spider, a pig and a couple of geese!
The actors did a fantastic job at playing all of the different roles in this play. The role of Charlotte, played by Hannah Mitchell, was a real stand out in this production and she was very enjoyable to watch as Charlotte the spider.
All of the actors were able to really embrace their characters and even the tiniest details were present in their roles. The way the actors related to each other was evident on stage and there was an easiness in watching their performance.
All of the youth presented with such great enthusiasm and at a professional level. We enjoyed this performance so much!
