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 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 tickets online, you may either 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.
Well, Church Basement Ladies’ Rise Up O Men performance is in the books, and from the laughter that infiltrated the theater, I’d say it was a huge success! Also, the sold-out Upscale Church Supper was a lot of fun before the show.
If you haven’t already done so, get your tickets now for our last show of the season, Stayin’ Alive, a Bee Gees tribute group. Friday, March 22, is the date. It promises to be a night to relive some memories of that era while enjoying the outstanding performance by this band.
Check out the individual pages for details on our 2019/2020 season. 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.
Season tickets will go on sale July 29, with single tickets available for purchase on August 19, so mark your calendars!

I was contacted by a volunteer from Learning Haven, a safety program for kids, and asked to share some information brought to light as part of a writing assignment by a student named Nicolas. The research stood out to the volunteer, and the other kids learned a lot from it. She saw that the Arts Council promotes arts in education, and asked that we post this for a period of time in recognition of the diligent research that was done. The article contains information about being neighborly and keeping our communities safer. Thanks to Nicolas for all his hard work!

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 for someone you know who could use a little healing. (And that might mean treating yourself as well!)
We are so thankful for our show sponsors! Please show you appreciate them as well by supporting these businesses:
- B104.9 FM (Muzzy Broadcasting)
- Hotel Mead
- Mead Witter Foundation, Inc.
- Quality Plus Printing
- Stifel (Terry Lang)
- WFHR-WLJY Radio
- Wisconsin Rapids City Times
- WSPT (Muzzy Broadcasting)
Thanks so much for attending our shows. We love seeing you fill those seats and enjoying each show!
See you at the PAC…
Sally Kissner, Executive Director
