The theme for this year’s performance at the Grand Theater is the 1980s!
We are TOTALLY excited to announce that CenterStage will be going “Back to the ’80s” in our 2019 show. The 1980s brought us memorable performers, iconic songs, and Broadway musicals that truly changed the landscape of music forever. We hope to capture that excitement and innovation and take our performance to a whole new level
As always, our show is FREE, and you can pick up your tickets starting September 1, 2019, at the following locations:
Grand Theatre/ PAF

Let us sing for you!
CenterStage Band and Show Choir Inc. was created for people in North Central Wisconsin to enjoy the healing effect, and sometimes explosive expression, that music provides. Some will enjoy as listeners. Some will not be able to resist the call to join, either as a performer or leader or “behind the scenes.” All are welcome.
CenterStage aspires to be the hallmark of this community, where the area’s most talented artists, support crew, and those wanting to learn new skills, and improve existing skills, come together to create and provide premier performances that can be enjoyed by all, regardless of their financial ability.
Come and share your passion and your talents for the performing arts. This group, consisting of dedicated individuals from central Wisconsin enjoy playing music, singing, dancing, and performing for various events in the area, as well as a free-of-charge, fully choreographed show at the Grand Theater in Wausau, Wisconsin on an annual basis.
We believe that fostering a band and show choir dedicated to well-performed entertainment enhances the quality of life for the entire community — before the stage, CenterStage, backstage, at any stage of life.
