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.

Our mission

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.
