Maggie Huston plays Wilbur 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 Huston: I really like theatre, and Charlotte's Web sounded like it would be fun to be in. I've not been in too many that have been this calm and peaceful.
Q: What is Wilbur like?
M.H.: Wilbur is a pig, and he's the runt of the litter. He's supposed to be disposed of immediately, but Fern thinks that's unfair. Fern takes care of him until he gets big.
Q: What are your favorite farm animals?
M.H.: Sheep, because they're really cute.
