Reflecting On an Unexpected Year

Thank You for joining us back in the Summer of 2020 if you were some of the fine folks who relaxed on our front TPAC lawn and listened to music! We are now partially through the 2021 TPAC season and have had some wonderful shows. More terrific shows are on the coming horizon with the remaining schedule laid out below.

We hope you will join us as well as help spread the word about coming shows. Some remaining shows will be outside on the front lawn of the Theater where folks can continue to spread comfortably out while having a picnic, making new friends, seeing old friends and enjoying the outdoors while listening to quality entertainment. Others will be held inside in our beautiful and comfortable theater, should the weather not allow for an outside show.

Lastly, please let us know if you have any suggestions for future shows, suggestions for the theater, would like to volunteer, or would like to help sponsor a future show. Any or all of these will make for a stronger and healthier TPAC. Feel free to call us at 920-847-2528 or to email us at

We so look forward to seeing you and hearing from you. Thank you for being a part of our TPAC family!
