VITERBO UNIVERSITY THEATRE DEPARTMENT TO PRESENT THE BALTIMORE WALTZ DEC. 8–9

LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Viterbo University Theatre Department will present The Baltimore Waltz at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8 and Saturday, Dec. 9 in the Fine Arts Center La Croix Black Box Theatre.

The Baltimore Waltz is a heart-wrenching comedy that deals with grief. It was written by Paula Vogel as a memorial to her brother, who died of AIDS. He had asked her to take a trip with him to Europe, and for various reasons, she chose not to go, not knowing that her brother was dying. He died less than a year later.

Vogel wrote the play about the trip they might have taken. Using just Anna and Carl, who are brother and sister, and “The Third Man,” who plays a host of characters, she takes the audience on an imaginary rollercoaster ride through Europe and back to Baltimore in time for one of the siblings to die.

“This play has been an excellent chance for students at Viterbo to put together a play, while working entirely with their peers,” said student director Erica Jo Lloyd. “With faculty advisors, the production team is composed only of students, giving them a chance to teach and learn from each other.”

Tickets are $8. For more information, contact the Viterbo University box office at 608-796-3100 or www.viterbo.edu/finearts1.aspx.
