2019 Kids from Wisconsin

 

 

Wauwatosa West High School Junior Henry Lehman has been selected as a member of the 2019 Kids from Wisconsin Understudies.
 
 
Kids from Wisconsin is a non-profit organization with more than 50 years of experience helping train and showcase the talents of some of the most talented performers from ages 15-20 in Wisconsin. 
 
 
Understudies have the unique opportunity to participate in a rehearsal camp in May and for two weeks in June at Wisconsin Lutheran College, learning the full two-hour Broadway-style performance that the Kids from Wisconsin traveling troupe will perform this summer.
 
 
The training opportunity allows the Understudies to hone their performance skills, work with some of their most talented peer performers in the state, and they have the potential to fill in as a member of the Troupe if needed.
 
 
Additionally, Understudies will have an opportunity to perform on a stage for individual performances at the Wisconsin State Fair in August.
 
 
Lehman was also recently selected as the recipient of the Exemplary Performance Award at the 2019 Wisconsin School Music Association State Festival for his Music Theatre solo.
 

He's active in the Junior Trojan Players, most recently playing King Triton in "The Little Mermaid",  and was also nominated for best actor and best supporting actor by the Jerry Awards.
