“5 star if not for seating”

The Appleton PAC is an excellent place to view a show or Broadway production. However, they could have used a little more elevation in seating incline. The aisle seats are great, but if you get pushed in the middle and are sitting close to the front you may have some obstructive heads in the way, especially if they put seats over the orchestra pit.

The Fox City PAC is an amazing facility in the heart of downtown Appleton. For a town of its size, it rivals almost all other similar venues in the state. We have been there multiple times for plays, musicals, concerts and speakers. There is virtually no bad seat in the house and the staff is always friendly. Parking can be a bit tricky near the PAC but it's easy to park on a side street and walk over. Centrally located near restaurants and bars for a stop before or after. The offerings are better than almost all other state venues often getting national tours before other locations in the state. It is a great place to catch a show or a concert.

I have been to many shows on Broadway and this is the best facility around, including New York City. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. There isn't a bad seat in the house!

I love going to the pac. They have a variety of shows that range from family friendly musicals to concerts. The touring broadway shows they get are always amazing and the seats they offer for all price ranges are very comfortable. Definitely worth going to.

For a small city in Wisconsin to have this venue, and bring high caliber shows to this community, is something that we are truly blessed to have. We can drive over for a day from Stevens Point, not have to travel to a larger city and spend money on a hotel, and see so many great family-friendly shows.

This season's schedule is truly remarkable. We have already enjoyed two shows this year (Wicked and Little Mermaid) and are looking forward to Waitress in December.

The staff is always helpful, the photo ops are a fun way to wait for the show to begin, and it is handy to have the parking structure across the street.
