ABOUT THIS THEATRE

Description
The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center opened its doors to the public on November 25, 2002 in Appleton, Wisconsin to rave reviews. The new $45 million facility opened its doors only 31 months after breaking ground. Not only was the facility built in a record amount of time, but it also was able to accomplish its goal of raising the $45 million through the private contributions of over 2,700 local residents and businesses. Boldt Construction Company worked closely with Zeidler Grinnell Partnership Architects and Artec Consultants to assure that this facility was world-class in both the amenities and the acoustics it has to offer its audiences. Each seating level boasts lobby space and its own concessions stations for a total of 25,000 square feet. The lobby is ideal for community gatherings on performance days and can also host receptions, meetings and other events. The lobby services both the 2,100-seat Thrivent Financial Hall and the smaller, multi-purpose Kimberly-Clark Theater. Thrivent Financial Hall's 40 foot proscenium separates a 5,000 square foot stage (the second largest in the state) from the 2,100-seat theater of which no seat is further than 108 feet from the stage. The theater walls are finished in a red Veneciano plastering technique, which complements the red seats and brass accents. The Kimberly-Clark Theater is a flexible black-box theatrical space that is finished with beautiful maple floors and red acoustical curtains to help soften the room. The 4,160 square foot space is ideal for receptions, banquets, lectures, and intimate music and theatrical presentations.
