LA CROSSE, Wis. – The big football game is approaching, so Miss Nelson has called in a secret weapon to get the team into shape, the dreaded substitute teacher, Viola Swamp. The students quickly learn that Viola Swamp has many lessons to offer in Miss Nelson Has a Field Day, a musical romp of schoolhouse humor, performed in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre Saturday, March 15.

Miss Nelson Has a Field Day is part of Viterbo’s Arts for Young America Family Series. It is presented by The Omaha Theatre Company, whose national tour is one of the largest in the country, performing in more than 65 venues in 25 states each year. Miss Nelson Has a Field Day is based on the 1985 book by Harry Allard and illustrated by James Marshall. It was adapted by Joan Cushing in arrangement with Houghton Mifflin Company.

This performance is sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin and Southeastern Minnesota and by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

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