Kids From Wisconsin, the state’s musical ambassadors, has selected three performers representing Antigo High School for its 2017 troupe.
Kids’ veterans Doug Benishek and Isaac Cuellar will be joined by Brennon Brown in this year’s ensemble, which will perform at Antigo High School on July 18. Shows are slated for 2 and 7 p.m.
Cuellar and Benishek, both AHS alumnus, are part of the Kids band and are entering their third year with the performers. Brown, an Antigo High School senior, was a Kids alternate in 2016. He will be a singer and dancer.
The Kids from Wisconsin select youth ages 15 to 20, with demonstrated talent in musical performance. Youth are professionally trained to provide positive, family-oriented shows to over 100,000 people annually. Kids also partners with many community service groups to deliver
affordable, high-quality entertainment, while helping them raise needed funds for local projects in the communities where they appear.
The Kids from Wisconsin is part of an entertainment tradition that goes back nearly 50 years to its beginnings as a musical production created for Wisconsin's talented youth in 1969.
Performing live annually for more than 100,000 across Wisconsin and the Midwest, the revue is produced in collaboration with some of the country's best writers, arrangers, and choreographers. Costumes are designed and created in Broadway style, adding to the already exciting performance.
The troupe maintains a broad repertoire of music that includes the American favorites, big band, 50s through 80s classics, Motown, country, Broadway and current top hits, filling a two hour fully staged performance.
The Kids from Wisconsin, to this day, maintain a large presence at the Wisconsin State Fair with performances twice daily on a main stage.
