TICKETS FOR "TREMENDOUSLY TALL TALES" MAKE GREAT STOCKING STUFFERS
LA CROSSE, Wis.- Just in time for Christmas, tickets are available for the Children’s Theatre Company’s presentation of "Tremendously Tall Tales" at the Viterbo College Fine Arts Center Main Theatre on Tuesday, Jan. 25, at 7 p.m.
Join Capt. Eddie B. Brown and the Travelling All-Star Yokels as they crisscross the Midwest playing mining camps and logger’s outposts while desperately trying to pay their rent. Together, they’ll bring you Paul Bunyan and his beautiful Babe, Mike Fink’s Mississippi, Johnny’s apple seeds, and the songs of Lady Slipper. Written by Patty Lynch, a devotee to Minnesota history, these stories are brought to life and creatively mixed in a comic setting. Her 1920s characters crisscross the mid-west and revisit the beginning of this century just as we begin the next.
The Children’s Theatre Company is based in Minneapolis, Minn. Annually, they play to more than 300,000 theatre-goers and are renowned for their artistic excellence and ability. Tremendously Tall Tales is a part of the Children’s Theatre Company annual tour throughout the United States. The performance is sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin.
Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under. For more information or to order tickets, contact the Viterbo College Box at 608-796-3100.
