Appleton is blessed to have such a world class venue as the PAC. Be it concerts, ballet, or live theater they are all equal in my opinion to venues like Milwaukee or Chicago or even New York, right here in the Fox Valley. The facility has plenty of volunteers to help you reach your seat, including those who need a... More

I enjoy going to this theatre. Everyone is always super nice and helpful. Prices are reasonable but could use more snack selection. Intermission went smoothly and was able to get a refill with time to spare. The parking was cheap and right across the street. I will be back.

Went to my first show at the PAC and it was great! Ushers were friendly and the seats were perfect. Purchased tickets for my parents for a show and they loved it too - overall awesome experience - perfect for families, couples and theater-lovers alike.

Went to the Colin and Brad 2 man show last night. We did upper level seats and had no problems seeing or hearing the show. Parking is cheap and convenient. If you visit one of the many drinking establishments after the show for one, the parking garage will be empty when you are ready to leave. It is always organized... More

It looks nice on the outside, bit inside it looks old and poorly constructed (cheap looking). I can't speak for the 'better' seating area, but the seats were way too small and crowded together. I'm not a larger person, but the people I was with are-they were very uncomfortable crammed in the seats. The seat rows are very long with... More

You might think Appleton is a small city with small time entertainment. Not so. The PAC bring the best of what Broadway has to offer. The theater is beautiful!! The shows are top notch! There are no bad seats. The volunteers are very friendly and helpful with any questions you might have. Within a 100 mile radius this definitely is... More

We always go to shows at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center. We have seen Wicked, Annie, Le Mis, and so many more. From the moment you walk in the door you are treated like royalty. Volunteers greet you, and help you with any questions. Food is a little pricey so eat pefor hand.

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
