LA CROSSE, Wis. – Adults and children alike will love the acclaimed Dallas Children’s Theater production of E.B. White’s classic novel, Stuart Little, at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 23 in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

Stuart Little is the heart-warming story of the true meaning of life, loyalty, and friendship. Stuart Little is a most unusual mouse who is born into an ordinary New York City family and all the charm, wisdom, and joy of the novel are brought to life on stage through his adventures and misadventures.

The Little family adopts a beautiful bird named Margalo who becomes Stuart’s best friend. Unfortunately, Margalo is forced to flee the city when she is warned that one of the family cat’s friends intends to eat her. Leaving his home and family behind, Stuart sets out in a gasoline-powered model car on his most thrilling adventure of all—to see the country and bring Margalo home. Along the way, he encounters a variety of colorful characters and exciting situations that test his spirit.

The Dallas Children’s Theater has been recognized by Time Magazine as one of the top five children’s theatre companies in the U.S., and the only one of the group to tour nationally. They have also been designated as an American Masterpieces Touring Artist by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Now in its 28th season, Dallas Children’s Theater “travels coast to coast with professional, large-scale productions designed to stir the heart, stretch the mind, and promote education,” according to its website.

Stuart Little is part of Viterbo’s Ronald McDonald Arts for Young America Family Series and is sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin and Southeastern Minnesota and in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. WKBT Channel 8 is the media sponsor. It was adapted for the stage by Joseph Robinette and is produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Woodstock, Ill.
