The La Crosse Public Library Archives is proud to present the 2018 edition of the popular Dark La Crosse Show. This unique production, performed in the style of an old-time radio and variety show, features all-new exclusive stories, period-appropriate live music, and a multi-media visual experience heavy on archival photographs. Local talent will recreate true crime stories from La Crosse’s past including murder in the pearl button industry, a notorious Red Light District madam, a 19th-century rail yard ghost that had the whole city on edge, and a love triangle saga almost too incredible to be believed as if cut right from the most outrageous tabloids – but it’s all true! Tickets are $15. All proceeds go to benefit the La Crosse Public Library and the Pump House Regional Arts Center.

Performance Dates:

Tickets are now on sale at the Pump House box office. For tickets, please call (608) 785-1434 or purchase online at:
