In the Wings: Charlotte's Web. Meet Maggie Pearl.

Maggie Pearl plays the Goose in Charlotte's Web, the second Civic Youth Theatre production in the 2013-2014 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Joseph Robinette adapted the script from the book by E. B. White.

Question: Why did you audition for Charlotte's Web?
Maggie Pearl: I really like the play, and my friends are doing it.

Question: What is the Goose like?
M.P.: She's a mother goose; she has seven children at the beginning. At the end, she lays more eggs so there are more children on the way. She's upbeat and happy.

Q: What is your favorite farm animal?
M.P.: A cow. I show cows for 4-H, and they're cute and snuggly.

Charlotte's Web runs Friday, November 15 through Saturday, November 17 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street, at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday show begins at 2:30 p.m.
