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

A very nice and well kept facility in the heart of downtown Appleton. There is really not a bad seat in the house, the views are great from all angles. My wife and I have been here several times but this was the first concert. Acoustically, the facility was good but not great, but the band more than made up... More

See many shows here. It's great to have Broadway shows not far from my home. I am a supporter of the Fox Cities PAC and hope they will continue to bring great theater in the years to come.

Fox Cities PAC is a great place to see Broadway shows without travelling to New York. While the other shows performed there are good, too, the Broadway shows are my favorite. The PAC also has a great, friendly staff ready to assist. A great place for fine arts!

This is a perspective from someone from Southern California. Went here recently for a performance of the Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra and the New Voices choir. This is a first class facility. There are several balconies. We were in the second from the top at the back of the seating. Really great view of whole stage, if a bit distant,... More
