Welcome to the Arts Council of South Wood County
Thank you for checking out our web site! This is the place where you can find out all about our performances. While you’re visiting our site, you can also get tickets to the Lincoln High School productions that are presented throughout the school year, so remember to check for those also. We have partnered with their theatre department for ticket sales, and you can get yours here for all of their shows. When you purchase tickets online, you may print them at home or request to either have us mail them to you for no additional cost, or hold them for you at the Will Call table for pick-up the day of the performance. If you prefer to buy in person or by phone, contact the Arts Council during regular office hours.
Now is the time to get your KIDS From Wisconsin tickets! They are $16 and may be purchased through this web site or by contacting the Arts Council during regular business hours (Monday – Thursday, 10-2:30). Let’s show our support of local “KID,” Megan Shields of Port Edwards. There will also be a pre-show performance by students from Rapids School of Performing Arts, so be there by 6:40 to take that in as well! Those of you who attended last year may recall that the air conditioning was in the midst of being upgraded…rest assured that the PAC will be cool for this year’s show!
While you’re here, check out the individual pages for details on our 2019/2020 season. Be sure to click on the links for a sampling of what the performance will be like. We’re excited about the entertainment we’re bringing to the PAC and have added a seventh show to the package. You will be able to select 7 shows for a 20% discount, 6 shows for a 15% discount, 5 shows for a 10% discount, or 4 shows for a 5% discount! As usual, purchasing 10 or more tickets for a single performance in one transaction will give you a 15% discount as well.
You may notice that we had a switch from our original February performance. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we decided to change to what we think will be an excellent substitute, Chris Kroeze of “The Voice” fame. Thank you for understanding that sometimes things happen–we know you will welcome him warmly to our lineup!
Season tickets will go on sale beginning July 29, with single tickets available for purchase on August 19, so mark your calendars!

Earlier this year, we lost the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. A quote by her struck a chord with me, and hopefully it does with you, also: “Music does a lot of things for a lot of people. It’s transporting–for sure. It can take you right back–years back–to the very moment certain things happened in your life. It’s uplifting…it’s encouraging…it’s strengthening.”
Thanks so much for attending our performances. We love seeing you fill those seats and enjoying each show, and we hope you are uplifted, encouraged, and strengthened by the music!
See you at the PAC…
Sally Kissner, Executive Director
