We continue to welcome audiences with an improved guest experience that will enhance your visit while following local, state and national and industry public health protocols. Because we are following the latest public health guidelines and staying up-to-date on data and trends, safety protocols may change but don’t worry – you will be notified by email prior to your performance with everything you need to know before your visit.


The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center has implemented additional security procedures for all guests. The focus has always been the comfort and safety of guests and believe this step to be part of that goal. The Center will be utilizing new walk-through security screening technology that you will be required to move through on arrival. The Evolv Express Security System keeps high-volume entrances flowing as visitors walk through at a natural pace upon entry into the building. You may be asked to submit additional screening if any prohibited items are detected. The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is not responsible for any property that is lost, stolen or damaged. All items subject to search by Center management.
