When someone thanks me for all I do at the PAC, I let them know that I don’t do it alone and that what we accomplish at the PAC wouldn’t happen at all without the tremendous help we have.

So, seeing as Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I’d like to take a moment to give credit where credit is due and thank everyone who makes what we do at the PAC possible:

  • The entire Hardin County Schools family supporting our mission by keeping the lights on, the air running, the internet up, and the facility safe and secure;
  • The superintendents recognizing our value and pushing us to strive for even more significant successes;
  • The school boards envisioning academics, athletics, and the arts opportunities in balance for the families of Hardin County;
  • The PAC’s Producing Partners financially supporting quality performing arts experiences for our community.
  • The amateur and professional artists and arts groups filling our stage with entertaining and rewarding experiences for student and adult participants and patrons alike;
  • The student and adult volunteers without whose dedication the facility could not function;
  • The audiences returning to laugh and cry and cheer time and again; and
  • The PAC staff tirelessly maintaining the quality of our performances and the longevity of our facility.

Words fail me for all you have done and continue to do, so I turn to Shakespeare, who had something to say about almost everything:

“I can no other answer make but thanks,
And thanks, and ever thanks.”


Congratulations to KIM ADKINS & CYNTHIA DOWNING – each a lucky winner of a $20 PAC gift certificate for completing an October Audience Survey.


Emma performing in Allegro’s Cinderella

This month The PAC Spotlight shines on Emma Comstock of North Hardin High School and professional dancer/choreographer Dale Brannon both of whom are performing in Allegro Dance Theatre’s Cinderella, the Ballet at the end of this month.

One of Emma’s most rewarding PAC experiences was being able to dance there with her little sister.  The PAC, she says, “Is a place we are both able to share where we can do something we love.

Emma, who plans to become a child psychologist, shares that performing at the PAC has helped her work outside her comfort zone. “It has pushed me to be more outgoing and has given me more confidence.”

Dale is ready to go onstage for an Allegro performance.

In addition to performing, Dale choreographs many of Allegro’s productions and appreciates that the PAC “provides a safe performance venue, where budding personalities can discover and cultivate their individual potentials, confidence in their own creativity, and a sense of belonging.”

Be sure to catch Emma Comstock and Dale Brannon on stage this month in Allegro Dance Theatre’s Cinderella, the Ballet at the PAC.
