LA CROSSE, Wis.-Meet Billy Dog, Lowly Worm, and Huckle the Cat on Sunday, March 19, at 3 p.m. when The Omaha Theatre for Young People presents "Busytown" at the Viterbo College Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
This production comes to life with its magical characters—all residents of Busytown. Billy Dog, the newest neighbor in Busytown, makes friends and learns through lively songs, chats, and activities such as: working, playing, being creative, and getting into the occasional sticky mess.
