15 Years Strong: South Milwaukee PAC Announces 2019-20 Season Series

The 2019-20 season will bring more memorable performances to the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center.

The lineup was announced last month, and you can purchase a ticket to four or more shows (a subscription) through their box office now, to choose your seat before the general public tickets go on sale at the end of July.

I always look forward to their varied lineup of shows, and it never disappoints. The South Milwaukee PAC challenges us artistically as a community, and that’s why it’s celebrating its 15th season this year … with hopefully another 100 to come.

From the press release

South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center (SMPAC) will celebrate its 15th Anniversary Performing Arts Season next year and recently announced the 2019-2020 Performing Arts Series at a Preview & Tasting Party hosted by the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Council, Skyline Catering & Express Deli, Azteca Restaurant, and the Milwaukee Gourmet House.

“Our 15th anniversary season will feature eight performances chosen for their high-energy, opportunities for community collaboration, and broad appeal,” said Rachel Sorce, Executive Director. “The annual Performing Arts Series is designed for people of all ages and aesthetics, and we encourage experience-seekers to join us for these exciting performances.”

The 15th Anniversary Season will open September 21 with ARTRAGEOUS: The Interactive Art & Music Experience, an energetic and visually stunning production where large-scale paintings are created live on stage while musicians, singers and dancers entertain and engage our audience. On October 19, sing along to the music of one of the most prolific and beloved songwriters of our time when Matt Vee Family & Friends celebrate the music of Neil Diamond in I Am… He Said. Local choir members will join the band on stage for part of the show. To start the holiday season, we’ll present The Mark O’Connor Band, a multiple Grammy-winning artist with one of the most distinguished careers in the business, on November 16. Coming Home will feature the band’s impeccable style of progressive bluegrass, country and Americana. We’re proud to present America’s trailblazing first ladies of mariachi, Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles®, in Navidad Mexicana on December 13. Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles® brings sensitivity, beauty, warmth and vivacious spirit to the historic art of mariachi.

For the second half of our season starting on January 30, we will feature Shaun Boothe’s Unauthorized Biography Series, a critically acclaimed musical project that celebrates the world’s greatest cultural icons to educate and challenge us to “live our legacies”. Half TED Talk, half live music concert, Boothe uses multimedia and motivation to deliver powerful and transformative messaging. For a fun romantic date or group night out, get tickets for the Australian performers, The Tap Pack, in Las Vegas style level up old-school cool as the new “Kings of Swing.” In our first-ever Canine Cabaret, the adorable Mutts Gone Nuts rescue dogs will steal your heart and then your socks! For our season finale, we’ll curate a special 15th Anniversary Variety Show that will be like no other. Auditions start soon. Visit southmilwaukeepac.org for details. Sponsored by Molthen-Bell.
