  • Charlotte’s Web
    Production Information 

    Your student has auditioned for CHARLOTTE’S WEB – The Stafford High School Fall Play. If he/she is cast, we ask that you attend the Parent Meeting on Thursday, October 4 at 7pm. The purpose of this meeting is to organize support for this production. Without the support of parents, we would be unable to provide great opportunities for students in theater at Stafford High School.
    Also, we will need the help of several adults on Sunday, December 16 to strike (remove) the set from the stage, and we would appreciate as much help as we can get!

    This is our page on the Stafford High School website ( The cast list will be posted on The Stafford Players web page by September 26. Students who are cast should check this regularly. Also, be sure to like & follow The Stafford Players on Facebook.

    An important fundraising component for the Stafford High School Theater Department is the sale of advertisement space in the program for our fall play, Charlotte’s Web. Therefore, cast and crew members of Charlotte’s Web will be asked to sell THREE (3) Program Advertisements.

    Students who are cast must be measured for costuming by our staff by October 5. (Measurements taken for past productions cannot be used. New measurements must be taken.)

    The SAT Test is administered on November 3 and December 1. We ask that students involved in this production who need to take the test this Fall schedule to do so on November 3, so that they can attend the full rehearsal on December 1.

    Rehearsals begin for the full Cast and Stage Management on Tuesday, October 30.
    The full Stage Crew will begin attending rehearsals on Tuesday, November 13.
    After-School Rehearsals Include:

(Allowances may be made at the discretion of the directors for reasonable conflicts which are reported at a later date, such as medical appointments, which are not foreseeable at this time.

However, please do not schedule appointments, events or trips on August 31, September 1, September 15, September 22, or from September 24 through October 28, or on January 5. Excessive conflicts and absences will result in removal from the production.)
