LA CROSSE, Wis. – Audiences of all ages will enjoy the Kennedy Center Theatre for Young Audiences on Tour’s presentation of Katie Couric’s The Brand New Kid in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre Saturday, Feb. 9.

It’s the first day of school and Lazlo S. Gasky is the new student in class. He’s a typical seven-year-old boy, but because he doesn’t look and speak quite like his classmates, the teasing and taunting begin.

When fellow student Ellie McSnelly realizes how hard Lazlo has it, she risks being ridiculed herself to spend some time with him. After an afternoon of playing soccer, eating strudel, and making new friends, the two teach their classmates a valuable lesson—one not found in textbooks—about the need to give others a chance.

Katie Couric’s The Brand New Kid is sponsored by the Wisconsin Arts Board and the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin and Southeastern Minnesota.

Performance time is 3 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for children for main floor seating and $10 for adults and $8 for children for seating in the lower balcony. For more information, contact the Viterbo University box office at 608-796-3100 or
