La Crosse Community Theatre offers heart-warming “Tuesdays with Morrie”
La Crosse Community Theatre continues its celebration of 50 years with the production Tuesdays with Morrie beginning February 14 and continuing through March 2, 2014. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m, and will be in the Veterans Studio Theatre of the Weber Center for the Performing Arts.
Tuesdays with Morrie is the true story of Mitch Albom, an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor. When Mitch learns that Morrie is dying of Lou Gehrig’s Disease, he seeks out his old mentor, and what starts as a simple visit to say goodbye turns into a weekly pilgrimage and one final class on the meaning of life.
Tuesdays with Morrie was written by Jeffrey Hatcher and Mitch Albom. The show will be directed by Greg Parmeter, with set design by Dillon McArdle, lighting design by Tim Harris, costume design by Mandy Parmeter and stage management by Samantha Abplanalp.
Cast members include La Crosse-area favorites Brandon Harris as Mitch Albom and Steve Larson as Morrie Schwartz.
