'MasterChef Junior Live' will come to the Menominee Nation Arena this spring

OSHKOSH - Fans of the Fox television series "MasterChef Junior" will no doubt rejoice as the reality cooking show competition pays a visit to northeast Wisconsin.

"MasterChef Junior Live" will make a stop April 17 at the Menominee Nation Arena, the arena announced Tuesday.

"The family-friendly show will feature head-to-head cooking demonstrations and fun (sometimes messy!) challenges with past 'MasterChef Junior' contestants, and an overall immersive audience experience fun for all ages," according to the arena.

Organizers will announce cast members at a later date.

Tickets go on sale in early November at MasterChefJuniorLive.com and menomineenationarena.com and start at $25, according to the arena. VIP packages also will be available and will include a premium seat, meet and greets with the cast, Q&A sessions, a signed show poster and photos.

The booking comes as the arena's owner, Fox Valley Pro Basketball Inc., remains under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection amid multiple lawsuits that accuse the company of not paying its bills. Several other high-profile events, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Tesla, have canceled, though arena operations continue.

On Tuesday, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Brett Ludwig issued final approval for Fox Valley Pro Basketball to borrow $300,000 from De Pere-based Two Willows LLC, which holds a $1.3 million second mortgage on the arena.
