LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Ronald McDonald Arts for Young America Family Series at Viterbo University will continue with The Little Engine That Could at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13 in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

Watty Piper’s The Little Engine That Could is the classic story of motivation. Powered by his well-known refrain, “I think I can, I think I can,” the Little Engine overcomes seemingly impossible odds to carry a train full of toys over an opposing mountain.

The Little Engine That Could will be performed by the Omaha Theatre Company and will feature great songs, dance, and dazzling costumes.

“Children and adults alike will learn that small bodies can do big things if they think big and believe in themselves,” said Omaha Theatre Company artistic director James Larson, who wrote this musical adaptation.

This performance is sponsored by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Wisconsin and Southeastern Minnesota and by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

Tickets are $13 for adult and $11 for child main floor and $11 for adult and $9 for child lower balcony seating. For more information, contact the Viterbo box office at 608-796-3100 or visit
