Cedarburg PAC, Inc. was founded in 1999 to help the Cedarburg School District deliver on its promise of bringing professionally managed performing artists to Ozaukee County. The Cedarburg PAC, Inc. enabled the District to fulfill its commitment to the community without assuming the financial risk of funding a Visiting Artists Series. Collaboration with the Cedarburg School District remains a vital element of the Cedarburg PAC, Inc.’s mission today. Key to this relationship is the recognized value of involving and exposing students to the performing arts/artists, as well as the operating business of a non-profit performing arts organization, in ways that are not otherwise possible.
Cedarburg PAC, Inc. Mission
Each season, the Cedarburg PAC, Inc. sets out to Enlighten, Educate and Entertain. This translates to every event we schedule and every life we touch. We work to accomplish our mission by offering ongoing opportunities to the students and residents of the greater Cedarburg area and beyond to experience and appreciate the performing arts.
Bringing Our Mission to Life
Each year, the Cedarburg PAC, Inc. brings world-class performers to our community through presentation of the Visiting Artists Series. The Visiting Artists Series showcases a broad range of nationally renowned performers and rising stars in a state-of-the-art, intimate theatre. Our 580-seat theatre allows audience members to get closer to their favorite vocalists, comedians, actors and musicians than many other venues. In fact, the last row in our theatre is only 78 feet from the stage!
With each performance an effort is made to expose students to guest artists through master classes, workshops, question & answer sessions and on-stage collaborations. And, we continue to look for other ways to educate young people about the business operations of a performing arts organization.
We rely heavily on the generosity, commitment and support of our dedicated Sponsors, Underwriters, Stars and Friends. They have helped to nurture the arts in our community. And many have benefited – our Visiting Artists Series audiences and our young people who have learned from and been inspired by our artists.
