I have seen several shows here and each put on very good. Not a bad seat at the PAC so upgrading to the orchestra seats may be overkill depending on the show. Actually first or 2nd level up have been better seats than floor level as you can see a broader show. Local restaurants can get busy before show time... More

We have seen many plays here! Wonderful group of people work here to make it a great experience! We prefer the side box seats!

This is a beautiful addition to the Fox Valley--you are never far from the stage--good sight lines--good acoustics--great parking close--many eating and drinking establishments within walking distance for before and after performances--great variety of shows throughout the season

Very nice facility and kind workers. Not a bad seat in the house. Sat top tier for Lion King and Wicked and middle tier for Illusionist, never had a bad view of the show.

The Fox Cities PAC does a great job of booking the best touring events in the nation. If it just left Broadway and it's touring the pAC will book it for their patrons. I'm a season ticket holder and I've seen Jersey Boys, Wicked, Dirty Dancing, among other plays in the last few years. In the next year I'll see... More

We took our kid here for Wild Kratts Live. Not a bad seat in the place. Kids loved it. Reasonable prices too

This venue is a gem for Northeast Wisconsin. I cannot say anything bad about it. We were treated like royalty from the minute we walked in the door til the minute we left for the night. If you have a chance to visit, please do!

We go to the PAC quite often for anything from concerts to Broadway shows. The PAC is a nice facility, but was not designed the best. The seats are way too cramped - if you want a more comfortable seat buy a box seat. Tickets are pricey, but you can get cheaper tickets if you sit in the nosebleed section;... More

I recently attended Jersey Boys, and the show was great. It was a wonderful production. Parking was super cheap and nearby. However, the theater should have been designed better. We were on the second level, and there was no way I would have been able to go to the bathroom without being horribly disruptive. There are far too many seats... More
