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 2018-19 performance season. The first two shows are in the books, you can still save 5% on your total package if you attend the remaining four shows of the season! Season tickets are the most economical way to enjoy some awesome entertainment in Central Wisconsin. Call or stop in, and we can set you up with some savings. While you’re visiting our site, you can also get tickets to the Lincoln High School performances 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 online, you may either print tickets at home or request to either have us mail them to you for not 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.
What can I say about our November performance, Presidio Brass? They were a class act! From the moment I met them, shivering from the Wisconsin weather (they are all from much warmer climates!), I was impressed. Their interaction with the students at the outreach was great, and they shared some helpful tips about brass “FUN”damentals. On stage, they entertained us with not only their amazing talent but with humor as they bantered with each other. Shaking hands with audience members during their last number, and then greeting in the lobby after the show topped off a great night at the PAC!
And now we prepare for our December show as we get “Hip to the Holidays” with Under the Streetlamp. This promises to get you into the holiday spirit as they perform your favorite holiday tunes, plus songs from the American Radio Songbook. Catch the guys on WFHR’s Morning Magazine show on Friday, November 30th.
Two of our season’s shows are selling out quickly, so even though February and March seem like a long way off, you might want to make plans now for the Church Basement Ladies’ Rise Up O Men and Stayin’ Alive, a Bee Gees tribute group. We also have a limited number of seats available for the dinner that’s being served just prior to the Rise Up O Men performance, so be sure to check that out as well. And the rest of the shows in our season are amazing also. (Have I talked you into that season ticket yet?!)
I saw a quote from Elton John recently with which I couldn’t agree more: “Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.” Every performance I have the opportunity to attend creates a mini get-away from this hectic world. This reminded me that Arts Council gift certificates or show tickets make wonderful gifts this holiday season for someone you know who could use a little healing. (And that might mean getting yourself a little treat as well!)
