WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. "He would love it, he was always involved in everything. Watched every practice and performance," Michelangelo Nock, Nerveless Nocks Act, said.

The official theme for the 67th season of the Tommy Bartlett Show is the story of Tommy Bartlett. The audience will see how the water ski show came to be. Tommy started in broadcast media then saw a water ski show, realized the entertainment value and as they say, the rest is history. Some of the performers, like the Nocks family, have been a part of the show for generations.

"Ever since 1977 we've been a part of the Tommy Bartlett Show, my grandparents performed here, my dad and his siblings performed here, I'm performing here with my brother so thas me a third generation," Angelina Nock, lead female skier, said.

The Tommy Bartlett Show includes water ski performances, motorcycle acts from the Nerveless Nocks team and a fly board performance.

"We have World Champions, National Champions, State Champion skiers and we have two people from Australia who are spending their summer thousands of miles away from home to be here with us, that means a lot," Angelina Nock said.

The Tommy Bartlett Show goes on every day from Memorial Weekend until Labor Day weekend at 4:30 and 8:30 p.m. For more information about the show click here.
