Incredible venue for an intimate 1 man show or Broadway extravaganza

I have seen everything from Little Women to Whose Line Is IT, and Tony Bennett to Spamalot. Phenomenal theatre and people.

Went here to see Weird Al. The show itself is AMAZING!!! The one negative I had, was their website stated "bring your lightsabers" - a common thing to bring to a Weird Al show. When we got there, this very grouchy employee said- put those back in your car!!! Not a big deal, but their website shouldn't have said to... More

We are loyal fans of this band see them at least once a year. We are from Chicago, their local performance is bad timing for us so we found this place to be a nice alternative. What a prefect venue for a concert. It seems the band has been here before they commented on how they loved the place also.... More

My friend got tickets for the show, we had great seats very close to the stage. The PAC is a beautiful theater everything about the experience was very enjoyable. When you come to the Fox Cities make sure to get tickets, you will be very happy It will be a great memory, I know that you will not be disappointed.

There really isn't a bad spot in this theatre to watch a performance. They have wonderful programs to choose from through the whole year. Weather it's a music performance or a musical, they get some great shows!! The volunteers that work there will also take your picture for free at one of the stands

I went to see the musical Chicago. I wasn't really looking forward to seeing this because I didn't care for the Movie. I was really impressed with the overall look and feel of the Performing Arts Center. The staff was very friendly and helped us with any of the questions that we had. I look forward to going to the...

The Performing Arts Center (or PAC) has been such a great addition to Appleton. So many wonderful shows such as Kinky Boots, Mama Mia, Wicked, Stomp, Lion King and concerts (Heart, George Winston, a Beatles tribute, etc.). Great acoustics, great shows and they try to mix the shows up every year. (Although popular shows back). Never went to a bad... More
