At Your PAC

Tickets are going fast for “The Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience” coming on Friday, April 17 at 7 p.m.

Emmy Award winning Shaun Johnson and his band blend the musical stylings of Tony Bennett and Michael Buble to create a contemporary big band sound with a pop flair. Silvercryst Supper Club, Lund’s Northwoods Auto, the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin, and Brian and Patrick Getchius at Thrivent Financial are sponsoring the performance. Johnson and several band members will also be conducting a special master class with 200 area music students earlier in the day.

On April 16, over 740 elementary school students from four area school districts will be attending a special performance of the national touring musical “Teacher From The Black Lagoon and Other Tales” at your PAC, all part of our educational outreach opportunities that involve almost 2,000 area students each season.

On Saturday, May 9 you can relive the magical music of John Denver with “Take Me Home” starring Jim Curry. 

Curry and his band will take you on an incredible musical journey that allows you to spend one last evening with John at the 7 p.m. show. The performance is being sponsored by Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative, M.P.B. Builders, Culver’s Restaurant, Wenninger Auto, and WDUX radio.

It is not too soon for planning your summer family activities.  Your PAC will again be sponsoring a summer children’s theatre in cooperation with Prairie Fire Theatre.  This year’s production will be “Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs”, with auditions for up to 80 local youth ages 7-18 being held on June 15 and performances on June 19 and 20
