LA CROSSE, Wis. – Audiences of all ages will enjoy a brand new version of the classic story The Princess and the Pea with performances at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13 in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

The Princess and the Pea is presented by Missoula Children’s Theatre and the cast of this production will be local youth. The Missoula Children’s Theatre Company will spend a week on campus working with area young people to mount this full-scale musical.

This version of the story features a kingdom of snow where the residents are Winter Wind Workers, Blizzard Bringers, Icicle Sharpeners, and Snow Smoothers, ruled by the Storm King and the Snow Queen. Add to that a Prince looking for a proper Princess to share the throne. Now imagine the Princess and her friend the Pea living in a kingdom of green rolling hills and running rivers with her subjects, The Flower Gardeners, River Runners, Green Shoot Growers, and Tree Barkers.

This production is sponsored in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin, and the National Endowment for the Arts. It is part of Viterbo’s Ronald McDonald Arts for Young America Family Series.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children. For more information, contact the Viterbo box office at 608-796-3100 or visit
