The PAC always brings fabulous entertainers & productions. I have seen multiple plays at the PAC & just saw a comedian, Frank Caliendo. We have seen The Grinch, Chicago, Wicked, and many more. We have sat in the front row & the highest nose bleed seats, and really there isn't a bad spot. Drinks are pricy.

Fox Cities PAC has wonderful acoustics. There is not a bad seat in the house. At 2000 seats even the "nosebleed" third balcony is close enough to the stage to see and hear without opera glasses or other aids. The Broadway shows are on the national touring schedule (smallest house on the tour). We also have some shows designed for... More

We attended a concert here on a Friday night in December. It was not our first time at this PAC, and we have enjoyed our visits each time. The hall is very large and the seats are comfortable. The acoustics are GREAT and we can always see the stage well from our seats in the orchestra section. Getting to our... More

The PAC is a phenomenal place to see concerts and plays!!!! I've seen the magnificent Lion King, Phantom of the Opera, Lord of the Dance, Acoustic Africa, the intro to the Mile of Music and several other shows here. Most seats in the PAC have good/great views of the stage!! The acoustics are great here as well. One thing I've... More

This is a jewel of a theater. We recently attended the Moody Blues concert here. We had previously seen Broadway shows and concerts here, and weren't certain how it would be for a rock concert. It was perfect! The acoustics are amazing, the ushers are very friendly, overall it was a fantastic experience.

Attended the Chicago concert at the PAC this summer. Good acoustics for the venue. Surprised how quickly and smoothly the crowd disbursed from all the levels of the Center after the performance. Chicago put on a very good show playing a number of their most memorable songs. Very nice evening.

Our first visit to the Fox Cities PAC and we were impressed. Many staff to help guide you, and a beautiful facility. We had seats in the first row (we went on line as soon as the tickets became available and snagged those seats). We had never been there before so did not know the set up of the theatre.... More

Our PAC is fantastic! From the central location to the exceptional design to the friendly volunteer staff and the audience comforts, this facility is equal to ANY that we have visited in this country or abroad and FAR NICER than most. First-class entertainment offerings complete the package. Find a show that appeals to you, and GO. You'll be hooked and... More

The main floor has 1 very wide center section with a shorter section on each side. There is no aisle along the outside of these outer wing sections. The balconies have very, very long rows that go all the way across with no center aisle for quick escape in case of a fire. If you have claustrophobia, choose wisely.
