  • April 4, 2024 – The Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis Tribute captures the very essence of these two actors and covers music, comedy, and skits. (Tickets $49 Adults | $10 Students) – We’ve added an upscale appetizer event prior to the performance. As details unfold, you can find them in “Upcoming Events” for this performance.

All tickets are currently on sale. With eight shows in our lineup, we’re structuring the season ticket discounts a little differently this year, to make this great entertainment even more affordable! PLUS, the only “fee” we add to your total purchase is sales tax–no surprises with hidden fees when it comes to checking out!

  • 5% discount for 4 shows
  • 10% discount for 5 shows
  • 15% discount for 6 or 7 shows
  • 20% discount for 8 shows

We also have a group discount of 15% when you purchase 10 or more tickets to the same show in one transaction, so grab your friends, and make it a night to remember!

Show sponsorship plays a huge part in our ability to continue to offer performances and outreaches. The Arts Council is beginning to recruit sponsors for next season. If you are interested in hearing more about sponsorship, please contact me (call 715.421.4552 or email Director@SavorTheArts.org). In addition to monetary sponsorships, we’ve worked out some unique in-kind sponsorships as well. We’d love to collaborate with you as we finalize support for the season. Ads and donations are also greatly appreciated!

I love what Aretha Franklin said: “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!”

Can’t wait to see you at the PAC!
