Support & Sustain


Overview of Impact

Education Programs

Education is a pillar of everything we do. Each year we set strategic goals to ensure we maximize impact. In our Amcor Education Series, we strive to serve over 24,000 students alone not to mention our at-risk, low-income family and many other programming priorities.


Everything that we do begins with our staff. From our world-class customer service, innovative programs, and engagements to presentation of our building, they are the reason our community comes back time and time again. 

​Community Gathering

Bringing people together and ensuring they belong is the life blood of our organization. We accomplish this by presenting the best and a wide arrangement of the live performing arts sector and holding special events for individuals and businesses. We do this by going beyond the stage and welcoming all, no matter your barrier. 

Act 1

Education was as strong as ever:

  • More than 27,000 students registered in our Amcor Education Series

  • 23 schools were part of Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program

  • 17 at-risk students were a part of our Performing Arts Touch the Hearts of Students (P.A.T.H.S.) Program 

The Staff were energized after an amazing start to our season! The Center was fully staffed to provide the best customer service and engagement the community has ever seen:

  • 32 full-time staff
  • 133 part-time staff
  • More than 500 volunteers

This banner season was something Northeastern Wisconsin was looking forward to for many years:

  • Started out with the Wisconsin premiere and sold-out run of Hamilton, a repeat presentation of The Phantom of the Opera
  • 18 events to engage our visitors through our Community First Community Engagement Series

Intermission (COVID-19 Pandemic)

Education programming halted:

  • 11 Amcor Education Series performances were cancelled, impacating 8,632 students
  • 3 schools that were part of the Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program were not able to move forward with their musicals and the showcase canceled the in-person engagement

The Center was forced to furlough approximately 95% of staff during the Safer at Home order. Remaining staff were instructed to work remotely trying to continue the operations of the Center from afar:

  • 12 staff members working remotely covering all lines of business
From March 14 to June 30, the impact was:
  • 100 events were postponed or canceled
  • 75,000 people were impacted through this loss of engagement
  • Lost 100% of earned revenue opportunities for the Center's 4th quarter (March 14-June 30)

Act 2

What comes next...
  • How will we support students and educators even if we cannot gather as we did?
  • How will we make our Fox Cities P.A.C. and its programs healthier and stronger?
  • How can we bring the joy of the live performing arts to our stage again without sacrificing the safety of our patrons, casts, staff and volunteers?
  • How will we retain top talent in our staff to continue providing world-class experiences at the Center?
