Faces of Winona

SMU Page Series


Saint Mary’s University Page Series will present “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea on Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 6:30 p.m. at the Page Theatre. A production of Theatre IV, the touring division of Virginia Repertory Theatre, “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” is a one-hour musical adaptation of Jules Verne’s 19th century classic. This riveting adventure beneath the high seas is the perfect way to captivate minds, support science and geography learning, and introduce young readers to one of the most popular landmarks of world literature. Join Captain Nemo, Professor Elaine Aronnax, and harpooner Ned Land as they explore world geography and aquatic life from coral reefs to the Arctic Circle. The Page Series will partner with the Winona Public Library and Minnesota Marine Art Museum for a free after-school gathering on Thursday, Feb. 11, at 3:30 p.m. Students will explore works related to Verne’s novel and create their own dioramas of underwater landscapes. This gathering is free, and no registration is required. Attendees will also have the chance to win free tickets to the Feb. 16 performance. Both the play and diorama activity are recommended for children in grades two through seven. Tickets to the play are $14 for adults and $6 for students and senior citizens. More information and tickets are available at pagetheatre.org or by calling 507-457-1715 (noon to 6 p.m., weekdays).
