Message from the Manager

SuzeDear Friends:

It’s hard to believe that the Stockton Performing Arts Center will be Celebrating 40 years of presenting the very best in music, theatre and dance! To celebrate this momentous occasion, we are bringing back a few of our most popular performances: 103 Years of Broadway, Buckwheat Zydeco, and Philadanco. We are also excited about kicking off our 40th Celebration with a special performance by legendary singer, Pat Boone!

We cherish our long-standing partnerships with the Bay-Atlantic Symphony, the Atlantic City Ballet, the South Jersey Area Wind Ensemble and The Greater Ocean City Theatre Company. The strength of these partnerships help expand the PAC’s artistic mission and solidify our commitment to the community. They have grown with us and will continue to play a significant role in enhancing the season programming at the PAC for many years to come.

Once again, we will be co-presenting with Stockton’s Student Entertainment Team (SET) to present up-and-coming musical act, singer/songwriter, LAUV. This might be our most exciting season co-presentation yet! And over the last three years, students and community members alike have responded overwhelmingly to these events.

Special performances are planned just for the younger set. Parents and children will delight in the heartwarming presentations of “Rainbow Fish” and “House at Pooh Corner”.

How about dinner and a show? The Friends of the PAC will be hosting pre-show dinners in Upper K Wing before Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Nile” on October 8th and again on March 8th, with Neil Simon’s “Last of the Red Hot Lovers.” Great food. Great friends. Great fun.

We invite you to join us in celebrating 40 years of the arts. Let’s make a promise to continue to keep the arts alive for many more seasons to come! We thank you for your continued patronage. See you at the theatre!
