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.

Very accommodating staff which is very much appreciated! There really isn't a bad seat in the center so buy the best you can afford. The seats are comfortable and prices are reasonable.

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.

This is one of the best Auditoriums we've ever attended. It's well laid out, the sound is great, and seats are comfortable. For the size of Appleton, this is a great performance space. I would hesitate seeing events there in the future.

This was a really nice PAC. Lovely! As a fundraiser, they had an silent auction, too. They also sold drinks prior to the event and it was just a comfortable stroll to the Copperleaf--next block!

I have seen this show every year for several years, and I like it best at the PAC. The PAC is a great place to see shows, and there's plenty of shopping and places to eat near by.
