WLC to Partner with The Kids from Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE, WI -  Wisconsin Lutheran College (WLC) has signed an agreement with The Kids from Wisconsin (KIDS) to be their presenting sponsor during the 2019 season, which will be the 51st season for the popular KIDS show troupe.

Next summer, members of the KIDS will live in WLC residence halls while they are rehearsing for, as well as performing in, their regular season. Additionally, Milwaukee-area auditions for 2019 KIDS members will held at WLC's Center for Arts and Performance February 23-24, 2019. The KIDS will provide entertainment at the Wisconsin State Fair in August, as well as at many other venues across the state.

“Wisconsin Lutheran College values the importance of the arts to our students and the community,” said Dr. Daniel W. Johnson, President of WLC. “We look forward to helping support the amazingly gifted performers of The Kids from Wisconsin. Our shared missions of providing personal growth and leadership opportunities to the young men and women of today will make for an enjoyable and rewarding partnership.”

For more than 23 years, WLC has offered season after season of world-class arts experiences for the community to enjoy, from guest artist and student art exhibitions in the Schlueter Art Gallery to performances in the Blackbox Theatre, Raabe Theatre, and the Schwan Concert Hall. Additionally, students at WLC can major or minor in Art, Music, and Theatre.
