What’s new at the PAC?


On April 28th over 800 elementary school students from area school districts will be attending a special performance of the national tour of “The Lightning Thief,” presented by Theatreworks USA, at your PAC., all part of our educational outreach opportunities that involve almost 2000 area students each season.

Tickets are going fast for “Simply Sinatra” starring Steve Lippia and His Big Band coming on Saturday, May 7th at 3:00 PM. In this musical salute Lippia interprets some of the most well-known and beloved Frank Sinatra hits. Steve’s singing reveals a man who truly understands a lyric, in a deeply personal way. He brings to life the music and lyrics of some of the greats such as: Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Sammy Cahn, Jimmy Van Heusen, Rodgers and Hart, and Stephen Sondheim. The performance is being sponsored by Silvercryst Supper Club, Lund’s Northwoods Auto, Retro Radio – The Bug, Culvers Restaurant, Linda & Tim Freudenthal, Weiland Refrigerated & Trucking, and Brian & Patrick Getchius at Thrivent Financial.
