The Theatre's upcoming season features literature-based shows
The Wheelock Family Theatre, associated with Wheelock College in Boston, will perform Seussical, Charlotte's Web, and Ben's Trumpet for their 2009 season. The Theatre supports local families and encourages children to become involved in theatre.
Seussical is based on the works of Dr. Seuss, who wrote many memorable children's books, including The Cat In The Hat, Horton Hears a Who, and Green Eggs and Ham. The Seussical characters are pulled from several Dr. Seuss books.
Charlotte's Web is based on the children's book of the same name by E.B. White. The book follows the story of Wilbur the pig and his friendship with a spider named Charlotte.
Ben's Trumpet is based on the Caldecott-winning book by Rachel Isadora about a young boy who wishes to become a jazz musician.
