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. 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.
For those of you who may not have heard, both Kids From Wisconsin and The Little Mermaid (the Lincoln High School musical) have been canceled this summer. While we are sad to not have these productions on our calendar, we are hoping that our caution and extra patience will result in preventing the spread of COVID-19, keeping our patrons healthy.
GREAT NEWS!!! We are thrilled to be moving forward with our 2020/2021 season! Some adjustments have been made, and things may be done a bit differently than in the past. With the #1 concern being the safety of patrons, performers, volunteers, and staff, The Arts Council will work with local health officials and follow State and Federal guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety. As safety precautions are established, that information will be shared for the sake of transparency.
There is something for everyone in the upcoming season, including our student population, who will now be able to attend performances for only $10! Check out the individual pages for each of our performers. Season ticket sales will begin July 27, followed by individual ticket sales on August 24.

Louis Armstrong once said, “Music is life itself. What would this world be without good music? No matter what kind it is.” I wholeheartedly agree, particularly in times of uncertainty.
Make this the season to savor the arts, the excitement, the experience–savor our community!
See you at the PAC!
