PostHeaderIcon Lion King coming to Fox Cities Performing Arts Center April 09, 2013

The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is celebrating its 10th anniversary season with a lineup that showcases some past successes, the touring industry’s latest big-name shows and new community collaborations.

The Lion King Musical will be part of the 2012-13 Fox Cities Performing Arts Center lineup, is scheduled for April 9 to May 5, 2013 in Appleton WI.

“We wanted to make sure that obviously we were reflecting on some great memorable moments that have really brought the performing arts center audiences together and built that loyalty that we’re so lucky to have from our community,” said Maria Van Laanen, the PAC’s executive vice president. “But then also, we wanted to continue to challenge them and continue to excite them because the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center’s audiences have been so supportive of seeing different types of art forms from different areas. That’s what you’ll see when you look at this 10th anniversary season.”

Disney’s “The Lion King,” which runs April 9 to May 5, 2013, played at the PAC in 2007. That was a “pinnacle moment” for the center, Van Laanen said.

“It was the longest-running show we had brought to the community up to that point,” she said. “This show, it changed the landscape on Broadway and I think it really was the sign that the Performing Arts Center had truly arrived in the touring industry.”

“We are one of very few cities that are presenting this on its first year of its national tour,” Van Laanen said. “Like ‘The Lion King’ did, this play caused such a ripple on Broadway because it is some of the most powerful storytelling that has been seen on Broadway in a very long time. And the way they tell this story, which takes place in World War I, through the eyes of the horse, is just magnificent. Because you’re seeing it through Joey’s eyes, you get a glimpse at all sides of the war.”

Lion King musical will run from April 09, 2013 and continue through May 05, 2013 at Fox Cities PAC. Buy Lion King Appleton WI Tickets online. Get $10 OFF on Lion King Fox Cities Performing Arts Center Tickets Orders of $350 or more by using code #SpringSavings at Checkout.
