Winter Fest says Milwaukee's got talent


If you've got stars in your eyes and want to start a journey toward Hollywood or Las Vegas or New York or even Branson, pay attention.

As part of its Winter Fest celebration, Dec. 26-31, organizers are going to hold their own version of "America's Got Talent" – called "Milwaukee's Got Talent" – right at the Delta Center (which used to be the Frontier Airlines Center, which used to be the Midwest Express Center) on Dec. 28.

Howard Stern will not be in attendance, but they are going to have some judges, led by last year's winner, 14-year-old singer-songwriter Hannah Mrozak. The other judges were not revealed by the organization but one of the organizers, Nicole Putchel, said they were "still working on some celebrities and sponsors."

Putchel said the competition was open to everyone but said the first prize was a session in a recording studio, which probably, she said, leaves jugglers or knife throwers out. In order to get into the contest, which last year had "about 20 to 25 entrants" you have to register by Dec. 14 at 5 p.m.

"We didn't even advertise last year so we expect to have more acts this year," Putchel said.

Information and registration are available at the website.
