LA CROSSE, Wis. – Viterbo University will present the award winning dramatic comedy Anton in Show Business in the Fine Arts Center La Croix Black Box Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4–Saturday, Feb. 6.

Anton in Show Business will give audiences a hilarious and sharp behind-the-scenes look into the world of professional theatre. The play deals with an ill-fated production of Anton Chekhov’s famous play, The Three Sisters. Two stage actresses and a movie star have high hopes but experience plenty of troubles and travails along the way, including maniac directors, toxic corporate sponsors, and Steven Speilberg.

Anton in Show Business is an enjoyable piece of theatre, and a lot of fun,” said Viterbo theatre department faculty member David Gardiner, who is directing the play.

The Viterbo casts consists of seven women, three of whom will play multiple parts, including the male roles. The set is very minimal. Anton is Show Business was written by playwright Jane Martin, which is the suspected pen-name of retired Actors Theatre of Louisville artistic director Jon Jory.

Tickets are $10 for general admission seating. For more information, contact the Viterbo box office at 608-796-3100 or visit
