LEWISTON —King’s Bridge Theatre will hold auditions for its production of E.B. White’s timeless classic “Charlotte’s Web” on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 29-30.

Auditions for the two-act play directed by KBT Artistic Director Robbi Starnegg will be from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday and from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at the theater’s resident stage at Pathway Vineyard Auditorium, 12 Foss Road. Callbacks will be from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday.

Attendance at both auditions is not necessary; however, if called back, actors must be available. Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script. The best way to prepare is to read the book, advised Starnegg.

Production dates are April 23 to May 1.

“Charlotte’s Web” weaves a tale of loyalty, friendship and sacrifice. The play begins in a quiet country spot with Wilbur, a runt pig, facing a quick demise.
