The 2022-23 Season was announced to an enthusiastic crowd of nearly 1,000 Season Ticket Holders, Donors, Group Leaders and Special Guests on Monday, March 7 at the annual Season Reveal Event.

“We are thrilled to welcome a season packed with performances that will engage audiences in live performing arts experiences. This year, we are inviting you to explore the meaning of community with us,” said Fox Cities P.A.C. president and CEO Maria Van Laanen. "After an unforgettable couple of years, we have come back strong because of our community and realize how important the communities around us are. Whether your family, school, hobbies, or professional communities, we are embracing those around us who give us strength and connection.”
 
The Reveal event featured a live performance from the stunning production of Disney's Aladdin and a guest visit from Stephen Gabriel, producer of Jesus Christ Superstar & Ain’t Too Proud: The Life & Times of The Temptations. In addition, the event welcomed the Appleton Public Library and IndUS of Fox Valley to share the importance of community partnerships and how they elevate programming to offer one-of-a-kind experiences for all.
 
Van Laanen shared, “Together, we have built stronger connections through the past 20 years thanks to our community. Since 2002, the community has enjoyed 38 Broadway premieres (39 with the Wisconsin premiere of Disney’s FROZEN at the Center in May), been a part of the more than 2.9 million patrons attending a live performing arts engagement, supported more than 400,000 students who experienced classroom lessons coming to life on stage — and so much more!  This season we will explore our communities, as well as those from around the world, and continue to become the place where everyone finds inclusion along the way.”
