Performing Arts Center
The Vicksburg Performing Arts Center is committed to supporting diverse cultural and educational activities in the performing arts for the school and community which will enrich both audience and performers.
We present a broad range of programming each season, including internationally acclaimed musicians, national tours of top Broadway shows, intimate performances of jazz and cabaret, music performed by orchestras and ensembles, family-friendly programming and many other special events.
We engage the entire community in new and exciting ways through an array of inspiring programs, our current season includes:
Junie B. Jones The Musical JR. – a delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park's best-selling books, brought to life in a delightful adapatation.
Join Junie B. on her first day of first grade, where many changes are in store: Junie's best friend Lucille has found new best friends - and Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. While in Mr. Scary's class Junie has trouble reading the blackboard - and she may need glasses. Add in a friendly cafeteria lady, an intense kickball tournament and a "Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal," and first grade has never been more exciting.
Featuring many lovable characters and fun-filled songs, Junie B. Jones JR. will capture your heart - just as the books captivated an entire generation of students.
Every legendary hero has to start somewhere. The Heart of Robin Hood is filled with swashbuckling, acrobatics, comedy, romance and original music, played on-stage. Forget everything you ever knew about Robin Hood. In this reimagining, the notorious Robin Hood and his band of outlaws steal from the rich, creating a fearsome reputation amongst those who dare to travel through the mighty forest of Sherwood. But they do not share their spoils with the poor and are unloved by the people, who must also pay unfair taxes to the evil Prince John as he plots to steal his brother's crown. In this time of chaos and fear, it is down to Marion to boldly protect the poor and convince Robin that he must listen to his heart if they are to save the country.

About the Vicksburg Performing Arts Center
Located at 501 East Highway Street, the Vicksburg Performing Arts Center opened its doors in 1994 to support arts-in-education programs, offering many programs designed to inspire young people through the arts, enhancing their studies and enriching their lives well into the future.
The Performing Arts Center soon became one of Southwest Michigan's premier entertainment venues and the artistic home to South Kalamazoo County's performing arts organizations: Vicksburg Rotary Club, The Vicksburg Community Association and the South County Players.
The Vicksburg Performing Art Center features a large modern stage with handicap access, orchestra pit, grand piano, make-up room, green room, wardrobe and dressing rooms and a convenient cargo loading area. Equipped with state-of-the-art lighting, sound, rigging, and electrical supply systems, the venue has been host to a wide array of entertainers from television and film stars John Astin, Dick Van Patten and Frank Gorshin to the world-renown Glenn Miller Orchestra. The Gilmore Keyboard Festival and WMU Children's Dance Theater routinely use our stage.
In addition to performance space, the Performing Arts Center Staff and volunteers offer support in technical theater to lessees, plus advice to community organizations interested in producing event such as concerts, theater performances, workshop services, recitals, corporate meeting and speakers.
The Performing Arts Center has 1011 fixed seats and 16 wheel chair spaces for total seating of 1027.
Volunteers give the valuable gift of their time and we welcome and appreciate all who contribute in this important way. From ushers to ticket office assistants, the volunteers are an integral part of the operation of the Performing Arts Center. Volunteering not only enhances PAC activities but also creates rewarding opportunities for social contact in an exciting atmosphere.
