MUSICAL "1776" MARCHES ON STAGE FEB. 8 AT VITERBO COLLEGE

LA CROSSE, Wis.—The patriotic Broadway hit musical "1776" takes to the stage on Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

Set in Philadelphia during the historic summer of 1776, the musical is about the birth of a nation—America.  Filled with witty comedy, patriotic music, and inspiring drama, "1776" is like experiencing the Fourth of July set to music. The production is presented by Big League Theatricals, a New York-based tour group.

"1776" won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and the prestigious New York Theatre Critics Circle Award. It ran for three years on Broadway and was the basis for a Hollywood motion picture.

"Theatre enthusiasts won’t want to miss this spectacular performance," said Michael Ranscht, special events coordinator for the Fine Arts Center. "’1776’ reaffirms for the audience the principles on which our country was founded and leaves them feeling renewed and invigorated."

The program is sponsored by Gundersen Lutheran. Tickets are $26 for second balcony seating. To order tickets by phone, call the Viterbo College Box Office at 608-796-3100.
