Welcome to the Arts Council of South Wood County

Hello, and thank you for visiting our web site. We hope you find it user-friendly and will come back to it on a regular basis to stay updated on what’s happening at the Arts Council! While you’re here, check out our season, from Rockapella in October to Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers in March.

Ticket sales are well under way for the 2017-18 performance season. Thank you to those season ticket holders who renewed their seats. We are thrilled to see so many new season ticket holders and will do our best to not disappoint. And then there are patrons traveling from all over the state to take in some of our shows! Whether you purchased one ticket or many, thank you for supporting the Arts Council.

The Arts Council has teamed up with Lincoln High School and is your ticket outlet for their performing arts productions this season. We are happy to support LHS’s efforts and look forward to seeing you soon. Check out THE LARAMIE PROJECT link for details about their fall production.

To purchase tickets for either the Arts Council season or LHS productions, you can do so through this web site; or if you prefer to stop by, our office hours are 10-2:30 Monday through Thursday. You can find us at 1040 8th Street South, Suite 101, Wisconsin Rapids. Or give us a call at 715.424.2787 during business hours, and we can assist you with your selection.

Sponsorship of performances is a major way that the Arts Council is able to continue providing quality entertainment for our community, whether through monetary or in-kind support

The following sponsors need to be recognized…some have supported us faithfully through sponsorship, while others are new. Each one is important to us:

  • Aspirus
  • B104.9 FM (Muzzy Broadcasting)
  • Mead Witter Foundation, Inc.
  • Midwest Communications
  • NRG Media
  • Quality Plus Printing
  • Renaissance Learning
  • Solarus
  • Stifel (Terry Lang)
  • Thrivent Financial for Lutherans
  • WAOW Channel 9
  • WSAW Channel 7

Please check out the “Supporters and Sponsors of the Arts 2017-2018” page for all of the businesses who have either provided a donation, an ad, or sponsorship. Stop by and support them.

We are soliciting your input for our 2018-19 season planning. There will be surveys available at our first couple of shows this fall. Pick one up and fill it out, including your name and phone; and you’ll be in the drawing for a free season ticket for next season. We also have surveys in the office if you’re in the neighborhood. Our goal is to continue to present performances that you enjoy, so share your thoughts with us! If you prefer, email me at with suggestions.

Having completed my first year as executive director, I must say it was a blast! I am so blessed to be able to serve you in this capacity. Thank you for all the support you’ve shown me, and to our board of directors for their dedication. There’s nowhere I’d rather be!

See you at the PAC…
