  • Outside the birthplace of Orson Welles in Kenosha

Citizen Welles: A Community Celebration of Kenoshan George Orson Welles on the occasion of his 100th birthday

Events scheduled during this time period at various Kenosha locations: May 6 – 31, 2015
(847) 710-2027

Born in 1915 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, actor, writer, director, and producer Orson Welles dramatically altered the mediums of theatre, radio, and film.  One hundred years later, his influence is still felt around the world and many consider him to be the best director who ever lived.  The City of Kenosha will commemorate his centennial year with a series of events designed to engage, entertain, and inspire, much like the larger than life man himself did throughout his career.
