INTRODUCING THE 2018 PLYMOUTH HOMETOWN SHOW:

It is a privilege and honor to any community and its arts program to have a student be chosen to take part in the professional performance experience of a KID. Alex Turicik, a 3rd year hometown KID from Plymouth will be joined by Bridget Bullard, a performance student from Kohler, who will celebrate her hometown show in Plymouth along with Alex.  How exciting it is that Sheboygan County has quality arts programs within their school and communities that help foster and grow talented artists.   The Plymouth Show is generously sponsored by: The Sartori Company, Masters Gallery, Sargento, Kathy and Paul Sartori, and Bank First National.  PAC’s Media Sponsor is 1420am the Breeze Radio Station.

 Alex Turicik is excited to join KIDS for his third summer as principal guitarist! Alex will finish his junior year at Plymouth High School in June. He is a part of many groups in the area, such as PHS Jazz 1 Ensemble and Pit Band, Momentum Show Choir, UW-Sheboygan Jazz band, Lakeland University Pit Band, and many more. He also shares the stage with his dad and family in The FlamingOs. Alex thanks you for coming to the show and for joining in the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Kids from Wisconsin!

Bridget Bullard is thrilled to represent Kohler in her second season as a principal singer/dancer. She will be completing her sophomore year in high school in June and is most looking forward to State Fair fun and meeting many KIDS alumni. Recently, Bridget played Mayzie LaBird in Seussical the Musical. She also performed at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s Vocal Arts Festival and Young Musical stars’ 8th season at the Stefanie H. Weill Center. Bridget is beyond grateful to the KIDS organization for helping her grow as a performer and a person. She is proud to share with others the motto she learned from KIDS last year, “You are enough” and worked to spread this message in her hometown with the #youareenoughproject.
