“good show,”

Fox Cities Performing Arts Center
Ranked #1 of 36 things to do in Appleton
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 25, 2013

The show was good, and I am a season ticket holder for the Broadway Series. Also attend the Symphony now and again. The thing that is disquieting is that every doorway, every entry, every nuance has a name attached of some donor - I understand the need to recognize people who donate $$ to the PAC, but I think it would be more classy to have a wall or something with plaques listing names, rather than " this door or entrance was donated by Dr and Mrs Noname. Tacky tacky tacky. Rows are too long, so that it is hard to get out at intermission, and I cannot see how this passed any fire code inspection. In most cases, there is only one way out of a row and the aisles are adequate but not quite large enough for a large number of people to exit in an emergency.

The building is nice and everything is modern and nice looking. However i have been here on several occasions and each time the Staff were terrible, Rude and just had an attitude like you were bothering them by being there. I try and avoid this place in the future.

Lion King, Phantom of the Opera, Jersey Boys, Annie and on. Combination of private donations, corporate donations and local governments have provided an absolute state-of-the-art facility that rivals any other in the State, despite the city's and Fox Valley's size and population compared to other major cities in the State.
Have attended these and other shows as well as other smaller productions (plays, etc.). The acoustics and view of the stage are fantastic !! Then.... there's Appleton's wonderful Downtown. Pick your variety of restaurants, pubs, specialty shops, first-class accommodations. Perfect !!!

wow, loved this performance!! went with my family ages 13-55. I love that the staff have smiles and some part of their attire that tie together the performance.
