Born in 1915 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, actor, writer, director, and producer Orson Welles dramatically altered the mediums of theatre, radio, and film.

The City of Kenosha will commemorate his centennial year with a month-long series of events designed to engage, entertain, and inspire, much like the larger than life man himself did throughout his career.
