(Wisconsin) A recent announcement revealed a selection of musicians, dancers, and singers selected to take part in Kids From Wisconsin, including two local Mayville teens. Jasmine Maller, and Holly Meyer will join thirty-six talented individuals who were selected as principal performers in the troupe via a competitive statewide audition last February consisting of approximately 300 students ranging in age from 15 to 20. Along with the 36, 11 Understudies were also chosen to learn the entire performance. Each performer will begin a 15 day rehearsal schedule starting on May 17th to learn a fully staged, two-hour, Broadway style performance to be performed over 70 times this summer.
Kids From Wisconsin is now in it’s 51st season, and producer and orchestrator Tsaras Nahirniak says “The talent that came out to audition this year made selecting very difficult not only vocally but instrumentally. Wisconsin should be very proud of the music programs produced in their schools. I truly believe we have Wisconsin’s best performers selected for 2019!”
