    Celebrating more than 70 years in print, Charlotte’s Web is a classic loved by young and old!

    All of your favorite E.B. White characters are coming to the ARIEL stage: Wilbur, the radiant young pig who is desperately trying to avoid becoming bacon; Fern, the sweet energetic girl who has a special connection with animals; Templeton, the gluttonous wise-cracking rat who produces the occasional good deed; the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be a good writer and an even better friend; and all of the other animal friends and townsfolk who witness the strange and “terrific” events at the county fair.

    Join us at The Karen Wilson Children’s Theatre at 320 Main Street, Salinas to see the story unfold.

  3. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! The ARIEL Matchmaker Fundraising Campaign is officially complete!

    Thanks to our AMAZING community, ARIEL has found its “Perfect Match,” surpassing the original goal A FULL MONTH BEFORE THE DEADLINE, for a GRAND TOTAL of $25,556 in donations!

    This tremendous outpouring of support has prompted our anonymous “Matchmaker” to increase their support. Instead of $20,000 in matching funds, each and every dollar ARIEL received through October 1, 2023 will be matched, as promised! This additional gift transformed our initial $40,000 goal ($20K raised + $20K match) into $51,112 in funding! We would like to sincerely thank our generous “Matchmaker” and the following supporters who contributed to this stellar effort:
