FRANKLIN THE TURTLE BRINGS "BIG ADVENTURE" TO VITERBO STAGE
LA CROSSE, Wis.—The world’s favorite turtle comes to Viterbo in a musical theater production entitled "Franklin’s Big Adventure" on Friday, Jan. 26, at 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
This production features Franklin and his friends Fox, Beaver, Bear, and Snail. The pals are off to visit the local museum where they visit displays of the Roman Empire, ancient musical instruments, the Rain Forest, and, eventually, the dinosaur exhibit where Franklin has a "Close Encounter" with a "creature" larger than himself.
"Franklin’s Big Adventure" is a Tanglewood Family Entertainment production and is part of Viterbo’s Arts for Young America program. It is sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin and supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. For more information, contact the Box Office at 796- 3100.
