You’ll find one of Door County’s own at Monday’s Kids from Wisconsin show at the Peg Egan Performing Arts Center in Egg Harbor. Brady Tooley graduated from Southern Door High School earlier this year and joined the performing arts troupe a few weeks later. Rehearsals started in the spring, albeit over Zoom and other virtual means. It was not until the very beginning of summer that the group of over three dozen performers began to sing and dance together. Shortly after that, Kids from Wisconsin started their 36 performance tour that will cover over 6,000 miles in just over six weeks. Tooley says the experience has only cemented his love for the arts.
Monday’s show begins at 6:30 p.m. and runs for approximately two hours. Kids from Wisconsin, which started in 1969, will head to towns like Janesville, Plover, and Lake Geneva before completing the bulk of their season at the Wisconsin State Fair August 5th-15th.
