The Walter E.

(If rain-meet at Christ Lutheran Gym 201 N. 3rd St)
This play will be performed by the Traveling Lantern Theater Company in conjunction with the library summer reading program, “Build A Better World”. Weather permitting; the play will be performed on Riverview Park’s outdoor amphitheater stage overlooking the Wisconsin River.
"The Ribbles Build a Residence: The ABC's Architecture, Building and Construction" tells the story of the Ribble family and they need your help!. Soon after their lovely insect nuptials, Mr. and Mrs. Ribble are expecting a baby Ribblet, and they need a new home for their family! Mr. Ribble wants to go big: but Mrs. Ribble convinces him to build a home that is more environmentally friendly. By playing interactive games and discovering basic building techniques, the audience will help draw a ground plan while Thia Tweet, the bird architect, and Gerry, the ant contractor, assist the Ribbles in building a new home for a better world!
