Summer is cooler and busier than ever, thanks to the Suwanee Valley Players.
August 5th, 6pm - 9pm
Do you have hidden talent?
Come audition for our annual Tri-County Talent Show! We are looking for youth through age 17 and adults 18 and up to share their talents in the August 8th competition. This year's theme is Country Jamboree. Auditions will be held at the Chief Theater. Call 352-210-8792 for more information.
The Suwannee Valley Players and Chief Theater are proud to present the Children’s Summer Production and their version of E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web adapted by Joseph Robinette. The Children's Literature Association named this "the best American children's book of the past two hundred years," and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling and utterly practical theatrical presentation. All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be "a true friend and a good writer."
Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the "miracle" of her web in which she writes, "Some pig." It's the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. Presented by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company, Woodstock, Illinois. Friday and Saturday evenings at 8PM and Sunday’s at 2PM. Call 352-493-ARTS to reserve your tickets.

It's all happening at the Chief.
