LA CROSSE, Wis. – Children and their adult companions will be delighted as the classic children’s tale comes to life on the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre stage in The Musical Tale of Peter Rabbit at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 18.

Young and confident, Peter Rabbit believes he knows better than Mama Rabbit. He is determined to go to Farmer McGregor’s forbidden garden, and embarks on a musical adventure to the paradise carrot patch. Peter gets a taste of fresh vegetables, but also of the perils of trespassing.

Children will love watching the thoroughly Scottish Farmer McGregor in hot pursuit as rascal Peter Rabbit hops, scampers, and finally eludes the towering farmer. Peter returns to Mama Rabbit to face the music, but learns the valuable lesson, “it’s better to be good than bad!”           

The Musical Tale of Peter Rabbit is brought to you by Bits ’n Pieces Puppet Theatre, which is “dedicated to influencing the world of tomorrow by enchanting the children of today.” Through the theatrical telling of classic children’s stories, each with its own unique life lesson and moral, Bits ’n Pieces brings to life the magical wonderment of children’s fantasy and reinforces the core values long emphasized by great storytellers.

This performance is part of Viterbo’s Arts for Young America Family Series and 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 $12 for adults and $10 for children on the main floor, $10 for adults and $8 for children in the lower balcony, and $8 for adults and $6 for children in the upper balcony. For more information, contact the Viterbo box office at 608-796-3100 or visit
