Why Wilbur, of course, is all those things – terrific, radiant, and humble!  He is “Some Pig”!  And he is celebrating his 60th anniversary at StageOne Family Theatre this May.  Hundreds of children will experience the magic of  E. B. White for the first time thanks to you.  So while you are out celebrating the Derby this weekend, drinking your Mint Juleps, and watching the parade of hats, take a moment and remember the first time you heard the story of Charlotte’s Web featuring Charlotte Cavatica and her friend, Wilbur.  Then drop me a note and tell me about it.  I love hearing from you every week!

Now press play on my video blog and meet the pig of the hour!  Then peruse the upcoming events also below, and take note you have one last day to enter our “When I’m 64″ ULTIMATE Abbey Road on the River ticket package commemorating the Fund for the Arts 64th anniversary!  Every entry automatically gets you two free tickets to the Monday, May 28th Concert!

It is that time of year!  Our fabulous Cultural Partners have been working hard to develop the most creative environment for your child to thrive in this summer.  View a listing of 2013 Arts and Culture Summer camps on our website today!
