The season brochure makes the following statement:

“This moment would not have been possible without the investment and support of the residents, parents, community volunteers, and leaders of the Village of Ashwaubenon. It was with long-term planning and vision that the PAC became a reality.

“There are countless individuals and businesses to thank, but we wish to share specific gratitude to late Village President Mike Aubinger. Mike was an instrumental force behind much progress in the Village, including the Ashwaubenon Performing Arts Center. His unwavering support, enthusiasm, and kindness invigorated many a community member to take action and pride in the advancement of the community, and we wish he could have seen this new performing arts series launch come to fruition.”
