The Fox Cities PAC is a wonder venu for all arts, every show is just wonderful. The theater is absoutely beautiful! From the moment you walk in the door, the experience is over the top. Volunteers open the doors and greet you, wishing you a wonderful evening and 'enjoy the show'. The concessions are convient, the lobby very nice and... More

I always have good time seeing the shows at The Appleton PAC. The seats are all good, I don't thing there is a bad one in the house. I love that they sell "sippy cups" for your beverage, so you don't have to slam your drink when the show begins! I also like the valet parking, it takes the worry... More

We have had season tickets to the PAC for years so we visit about 10 times a year. I've also been going to the Weidner Center in Green Bay for 20 yrs so I feel I have a solid experiential comparison. What I love about the PAC is the variety of shows. They do a great job of bringing in... More

It is a small theatre, but don't equate small with poor quality. All the seats in this venue have a great view of the stage, and I could hear the performers clearly. The PAC also has a lot of great Broadway shows that stop here on tour. I saw Phantom of the Opera, and I have seen this show at... More

I remember well the days before the PAC was built, so appreciate that we now have such a fine facility for Broadway-caliber shows and entertainment. The seats are comfortable, but I usually spend time shifting my head from right to left to see over heads, especially if I am in the orchestra (main floor) seating area. I wish they had... More

I have seen multiple shows here. Most seats are good but avoid the sides if possible. My favorite spot is second row in the middle of the dress circle. Shorter people may not like the main floor as the rise is not steep enough to see over the person in front of you. My only disappointment was leaving at intermission... More

I have seen several shows at the PAC and I have yet to get a bad seat. Parking is convenient right across the street and they have valet parking. Lots of restaurants and bars near by to make it a complete night both before and after.

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. We appreciate having the PAC in our community to bring the fine arts to Appleton. The facility is lovely and all the seats are very... More
