“Auditorium Atmosphere”

Fox Cities Performing Arts Center
Ranked #1 of 35 things to do in Appleton
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 9, 2012

How disappointing. They build this big structure right in the middle of the old downtown Appleton and call it a performing arts center while it feels like a high school auditorium. The acousics are not very good.. I've been to New York, Chicago and even the Green Bay Weidner Center and the only way the PAC compares is in price of tickets. If you are seated anywhere above the mezzanine the quality of the view is not good and up on the higher levels, forget it. How very disappointing.

I'm not into shows that much, but have been to a handful here. They are well organized and the theater itself is nice.

This will never have the feel of the New York theater. The place has a cold feeling to it, not warm and welcoming.

The theater does not have the character and charm of many theaters I have attended. However, it is designed pretty well and offers decent views from most seats.
