Theatre Hike:  CHARLOTTE’S WEB- (Script in Hand)

EDGE is excited to bring the stage play of EB White’s classic Charlotte’s Web to a park near you! Named the best American children's book of the past two hundred years, this classic tale of friendship is sure to be a hit with all! 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.

Summerslam Camp Session 2-August 8th and 9th

All classes are held outside in the park next to Waveland Clock Tower. They will run rain or shine, unless there’s a great deal of rain or cold; if that occurs, they will be moved to Pendulum building (if it is a Session class) or rescheduled if a LARP Event (we will notify parents via email as soon as possible in the event this happens). Drop-ins are welcome in some classes; Please check the “Notes” section. Classes, of course, must meet their minimum to run at all.

Details and Perks of the Park:  There is plenty of metered parking. The Irving Park (#80) and Addison (#152) buses are also great options, plus several inner Lake Shore Dr. buses. There are public bathrooms, plenty of shade, and a lovely bar/cafe nearby. Drop your kid off or stay and enjoy the park! Sign up for 3 (paying classes, not LARP) and get one free!
