LA CROSSE, Wis. – The talented actors of Theatre IV will bring Patchwork: The Little House Life of Laura Ingalls Wilder to the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 17.

The pioneering Ingalls family traveled west across the wild and perilous American frontier in hopes of obtaining new land and a better life. As they traveled, they crafted extravagant patchwork quilts that narrated the triumphs and failures of their adventures. The quilts would later be used as inspiration for Laura Ingalls Wilder’s famous Little House series of children books.

This production is part of Viterbo’s Ronald McDonald Arts for Young America Family Series and is performed by the actors of Theater IV, a non-profit, professional touring children’s theatre group that provides outstanding educational entertainment. It is sponsored by The 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.

Main floor tickets are $12 per adult and $10 per child and lower balcony tickets are $10 per adult and $8 per child. For more information, contact the Viterbo box office at 608-796-3100 or visit
