Stockton University’s PAC is Still Going Strong
Galloway, N.J. — Following a break after the holiday season, Stockton University’s Performing Arts Center (PAC) is opening its doors once again to the public for the spring of 2023. The main stage is booked from early February to the end of April and includes acts ranging from dance and aerial acrobatics to fun shows full of laughter and parodies.
"The PAC has an amazing lineup of performances in the months ahead," said Anjanette Christy, the interim director of the PAC. "I am honored to play a role in bringing such talented and diverse artists to the Stockton PAC stage. From music, theater, comedy and more, I am confident that the remainder of the 2022-23 season will provide unforgettable experiences for our audiences.”
Some of the acts taking the main stage this season include:
- The Great DuBois: Masters of Variety (Saturday, Feb. 11): A fast-paced, high-energy circus show for all ages, showcasing incredible feats of juggling, hula hoops, unicycles, aerials, circus stunts, contortion, magic and audience interaction all wrapped up in a blanket of comedy.
