CLOQUET — The County Seat Theater will open the 2023 season with a production of "Charlotte's Web," according to a news release.

The hour-long show is suitable for attendees of all ages.

This show will feature 22 actors from ages 8 to adults. Wilbur the pig, who desperately wants to avoid the butcher, will be played by Mayzlin Cordle and Zoe Jazdzewski; Fern, the girl who understands animals, will be portrayed by Rachel Dinger; and Charlotte, the extraordinary spider, will be played by Christy Wolvert.

The story centers on Charlotte as she uses her web-spinning skills to save Wilbur.

“We have some fun special effects in the show that will highlight our new lighting system, but it's the story and relationships that make the show,” said co-director Joel Soukkala.


Performances are set for 7 p.m. Feb. 3-4 and Feb. 9-10; and 2 p.m. Feb. 5 and Feb. 11-12. The show will be held at the Encore Performing Arts Center.

Diane Piette is the featured artist in the gallery during "Charlotte's Web," the news release said. She is currently enjoying working in her teaching studio, Peace and Patience Textile Arts. While photographing, drawing and teaching at camp, Piette is primarily concentrating now on fiber.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
