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.

I've lived in Appleton for 25 years. I've been to performances in venues in large cities. The Fox Cities PAC is okay. If you want to stay put in Appleton for a performance, it's an okay option. They tend to get productions that have been popular in other cities. Many repeat productions of Wicked, Mama Mia, Lion King - lots... More

We came up from Chicago to see Phantom of the Opera, and were so pleased with the experience. I have seen many plays in theaters big and small, and this was one of my favorites. This theater could fit in in any major city. It's big and spacious and very well maintained with comfortable seats. There are multiple levels, and... More

2nd time making the trip north from northern Illinois for a show with family. Love the venue and they put on Broadway quality shows in smaller town America. Out of the 4 of us, I was the only one who had never seen Phantom of the Opera. This production, along with a live orchestra, was somewhat different from the original... More
