While in WI, Krystal has performed with jazz and rock bands, Children’s Theater of Madison, Music Theatre of Madison, Capital City Theatre, Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda program, and has performed for many fundraisers.

Luke Smetters started entertaining his family the moment he was born and started singing before he even learned to speak. He has sung in choirs throughout his life. While a student at Valparaiso University, he had the privilege of singing in several churches throughout Germany. Over the years, he has sung for both the Chicago and Dubuque Chorales. On one occasion, he even sang in a choir at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London! Luke can regularly be seen on community theatre stages here in Monroe and in Darlington. One of the biggest reasons he loves singing and entertaining is the magic of bringing joy to people’s lives. Luke is proud to call Monroe his home for 6 years now and works at the Green County Family YMCA as the Membership and Community Engagement Director.
