20th Anniversary Showcase of Talent
Co-directed by Jackie Ceithamer and Tashona Smith
For a 20th consecutive year, the Monroe Arts Center is proud to host this event which showcases southern Wisconsin’s and northern Illinois’s wealth of talented individuals and groups in an evening of family entertainment. In addition, some of your favorite acts from the previous nineteen years will return to the Showcase stage. With Big Radio’s own Dan Blum as Master of Ceremonies, Showcase of Talent will be presented in the same vein as a radio-type variety show, complete with vocal and instrumental musical entertainment, jokes, comedy, a few surprises, and more.

As with any live show, an on-stage house-band adds to the excitement of the evening. The house band includes area musicians Adam Bansley (rhythm guitar), Erik Madsen (drums), Steve Scheppele (keyboard), and Scott Walters (bass guitar).

Cast members represent the Wisconsin communities of Blanchardville, Madison, Monroe, Monticello, and Verona, as well as the Illinois towns of Freeport, Lena, and Stockton. Scheduled performers are Adam Bansley, Hillary Barnes, Donald Bradley, Jerry Bredenson, Adair Bristow, Tracy Bristow, Jessica Bystry, Jackie Ceithamer, Marcia Dahmen, Isabelle Driver, Ken Frerichs, David Hermanson, Ronald Hermanson, Ron Johnson, Nina Kanyeva, Kurt Kline, Janelle Kosek-Massey, Dave Moser, Nick Losco, Clyde Martin, Sierra McGuire, Gary Partridge, Natasha Patterson, Aaron Phillips, Terry Shaker, Tashona Smith, Zeke Smith, Mary Soddy, George St. Ores, Robert Vanderheyden, Kristen Weckerly, Megan Weimann, Jim Werkheiser, Jon Werkheiser, Delaney Wickstrum, Olivia Wiegel, and Amy Zwicker.
