Narrators Sarah Brogden, Shirley Crawley, and Sarah Mandel bring E.B. White’s classic story to life in Halifax County Little Theatre’s production of “Charlotte’s Web.” The play opens at the Prizery Theatre Friday, Nov. 21, at 7:30 p.m. There are eight public performances planned, including two 10 a.m. shows on Nov. 22 and 29, and two Sunday matinees on Nov. 23 and 30.
