APPLETON (WLUK) -- The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center newest season is bringing some big screen favorites to the stage.
The P.A.C. released its 2020-21 season Monday.
It includes Broadway favorites like "Mean Girls," "To Kill a Mockingbird," "Disney's Frozen," "Cats," "Tootsie," and Elton John and Tim Rice's "Aida."
"To Kill A Mockingbird," "Frozen" and "Tootsie" will be making their Wisconsin premieres at the PAC. The three shows will push the total of Wisconsin premieres in the PAC's 18-season history to 41.
"That's something our community should be really proud of because it speaks very highly to the quality of life and how much our community values the arts, and that is something that is recognized nationwide when you have these producers who, time after time, see that bringing their shows here to the Fox Cities first is a great idea for their product," PAC president Maria Van Laanen said.

PAC officials are warning the public about outside ticket vendors.
"A word to the wise: Make sure that you are going to foxcitiespac.com, because every year we are seeing more fraudulent websites and social media posts going out there," Van Laanen said. "These are people claiming to have tickets to the Performing Arts Center events, but they really don't. Often, people are either buying fake tickets or they're paying much higher ticket prices than what they would pay if they came directly here to the Performing Arts Center."
