According to a release from Wisconsin State Fair, applications are now being accepted for positions in the 2013 Kids from Wisconsin musical performing troupe. Completed forms must be received by Jan. 18 to be eligible for live auditions scheduled for Feb. 22, 23 and 24.
The KIDS travels throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest during the summer months, and is an excellent learning experience for anyone interested in professional performance in the fields of dance, instrumental and vocal music. Approximately 33 positions are open for dancers, vocalists and band members. Qualified males and females between the ages of 15 and 20, regardless of race, color, handicap or national origin are eligible to apply.
Muskego has had a wealth of talent to provide to the troupe over the years, and last year three of the members hailed from our hometown.
Each June, a stage performance created by a professional artistic staff is taught during an intense 17-day camp. During the following ten weeks, Kids from Wisconsin tours the State and Midwest performing nearly 70 fully staged performances to enthusiastic audiences at 45-50 events, including daily appearances on two stages at the Wisconsin State Fair.
The Kids from Wisconsin was founded in 1969 in partnership with the Wisconsin State Fair with the mission to provide a unique performing arts experience for musically talented young people and promote a positive image of Wisconsin’s youth and is considered by many to be the state’s official musical ambassadors of Goodwill.
Applications are available from all public and private high school music directors, on the KIDS web site at www.kidsfromwisconsin.org or may be requested by contacting the KIDS office at 414-266-7067.
