All bags entering the building are subject to search and prohibited items will not be allowed. Teachers and chaperones are discouraged from bringing bags, however, necessary backpacks, or bags may be searched and tagged before being allowed in the theater.
We ask that students leave their backpacks at school for Bemis Company Education Series performances, however if students do bring them, they are subject to search and will need to be checked at the registration table in the lobby upon entry.
Gum, beverages (including water bottles) and food are not allowed in the theater for Bemis Company Education Series performances.
Q: Why did the Fox Cities P.A.C. adopt a security screening policy?
The Center's team regularly evaluates policies and procedures and we have been seeing new security procedures put in place in larger public gathering venues throughout the country. We take patron safety very seriously and worked with local officials as well as industry leaders to develop a security screening policy and security procedures which we hope will provide peace of mind for our patrons, while also giving them the same exceptional visitor experience they have been enjoying for more than 15 years.
Q: What happens if my educator/chaperone/students arrives with a prohibited item?
If items you are bringing are prohibited, you will be asked to return the bag and/or prohibited items to your bus or vehicle. Prohibited items will not be allowed in the building under any circumstance.
Q: What if I have a medical device or need to have medical items available to me during a performance?
Medically necessary devices, prescriptions and other related items will be allowed but are subject to search.
Q: What if I have a diaper bag?
Diaper bags will be searched, but allowed in the theater for groups with small children.
Q: What if I leave the building/come back for the second performance with my bag?
Your bag will be subject to search each time you enter the building, including same performance or same day entry for multiple performances.
