DALLAS CHILDREN’S THEATER TO PRESENT STUART LITTLE AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY
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.
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.
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

special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing, Woodstock, Ill.
