Kids from Wisconsin

Auditions are set for February for the 2017 “Kids From Wisconsin” season.

The Kids From Wisconsin show troupe has been entertaining audiences all over Wisconsin, the Midwest and the nation since the KIDS inaugural summer of 1969.

Following 17 days of training and learning the two-hour, Broadway-style production, this talented group of 20 vocalists/dancers and 13 instrumentalists will take to some great stages to perform up to 60 shows during the summer along with being featured at the Wisconsin State Fair.

Kids From Wisconsin is a non-profit performing arts program for talented youth ages 15-20.

This program is made possible with funds from sponsors, individual donations and foundations, including a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
