VITERBO PRESENTS THE WITCH AND THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN
LA CROSSE, Wis.--Stocked with drama, laughter, and music, The Witch and the Magic Mountain brings its exciting journey and message about the importance of family to the Viterbo stage on Sunday, March 30, as part of the Arts for Young America series.
The tale is about three children who set out to find the Bird of Light and save the life of their mother, the Queen. Each phase of the journey is a story within the main story, with its own unique mood and atmosphere. There’s the knockabout comedy of the robbers in the Forest of Night, the spine-tingling mystery of the secret of the Sea Serpents, and a final, dramatic encounter with the witch, whose power to turn children to stone is overcome by the heroine’s own power to enchant the witch by telling her stories.
The Witch and the Magic Mountain is sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin, Inc. and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the state of Wisconsin.
Show time is 3 p.m. and tickets cost $10 for adults and $8 for children under 12. For more information, contact the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100.
