Recently moved to Appleton from Arizona. Bought tickets to Book of Mormon and attended the production. Seats were comfortable but a bit tight (not much personal space).

The Fox Cities PAC is an excellent venue for a multitude of Broadway and community shows and concerts. We are season subscribers to the Fox Valley Symphony as well as the Broadway series of shows.

First, the Arts Center is beautiful..architecturally in design and detail. The lobby is open, I guess it's 3-4 stories high, the atmosphere inviting. I saw the Moody Blues and the Book of Mormon there. Both were outstanding.

I came here a few years ago to see "The Lion King" and absolutely loved it. All the seats are great, the venue is beautiful, and I love the city.

Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is a beautiful, modern facility. Best seats in my opinion are in the Dress Circle. Located in the heart of downtown Appleton, on College Ave., it's surrounded by bars and pubs for drinks and food before or after the show. We found excellent gelato at Copper Rock Coffee east of the center.

I had the most wonderful time going to a musical at the PAC. It was so accessible for my wheelchair and everyone there was so accommodating! The fact that it was only a block away from the Raddison Paper Valley made the experience that much better!

We love this theater. Seats are all pretty good since it isn't too big. It is newer and well kept and prices low compared to what you pay in larger cities. And they bring in the big names.

I've been a patron here since their very first season. Have seen everything from wild stage shows to one man performances and have never been disappointed by the experience.
