i read where npac director says young people are closed minded because they do not attend shows made up of performers 50 to 80 years old?? no mr director you are the closed minded one for only having shows that appeal to people your age and older. we will be open minded as soon as you are...
My Opinion is

I don't think having Bob Knight is a good thing. What if he blows his lid and starts throwing chairs and stage hands at the audience? Definitely a lousy role model.
really true

I hope he goes stark raving mad. That's why me and all my friends are buying tickets. We want to see this guy in action.

Are you kidding? If that happened it would make the news! It would put VW on the map! We can only hope! But I think they have Bobby on meds these days. Not gonna happen.
really true too

And some people on here wonder why the NPAC keeps booking shows that appeal to families and older folks. It just works - that's why. This is a town of older conservative people. It is what it is. There are lots of other places for other forms of entertainment. It'd be pretty expensive to change a mindset. Some have tried, no one has yet succeeded.

there are plenty of 30 and unders in this town to support shows for young people, thats just an excuse to keep doin the same old same old cause the folks picking the programming are......you guessed it old
really true too

Volunteer for the board or the programming committee. Can you tell me the last three shows you attended anywhere that appealed to a 30 year old?

They don't bring in the acts for the under 30 crowd because they are concerned with damage. At least that's what I was told.

I like the PAC, but I quit going to shows unless it's to see family (dance recitals, high school plays, Ohio's Got Talent). I won't support them because they don't offer shows for everyone and their crew sucks. They are opinionated and think because they are running lights and sound they are super important to everyone in town. Trust me fellas we could care less. Just do your job and keep your opinions to yourself, because in your lame attempts to "pump up the PAC" it comes off as defensive and desperate. I went to many shows prior to last year, so many empty seats kind of speaks louder than words. Sure some may have sold, but people didn't come. Now I have to read these lame-os all over the internet intruding on discussions while coming off like wanna be PAC guardians. Again, you should shut up because all you do is turn people away.
Just sayin

Glad the location of the NPAC is out of town where the kids have sidewalks to walk on so they can see the entertainment for youth and use the sparkling new tennis courts. Glad seniors without transportation can also enjoy it. Fail.

Here we go again. They just had something for you young jacka**es at the fairgrounds and all you did was bellyache and complain.

The point is no matter what the entertainment is you wouldn't go anyway. All you idiots want to do is complain. You expect everybody to cater to your every whim. Where did you learn that from? I got news for you, the real world doesn't care what you think. No wonder you cannot hold a good job. Maybe your parents gave you too much.

That is dumb. They have had several shows throughout the season for the under 30 crowd, but you crybabies don't support them. Keep your stupid comments to yourself as they are tired and worn out. I mean it is not like we haven't heard them before.

Why don't you dig down into your bank account a sponsor a show? Then you would have what you want. No guts?

I have a great Job. How would you know if we would go or not there has never been any shows at the pac geared to my age group. Easy for an Old Fart like you to talk when ever performer has to be wheeled on stage with an oxygen bottle

Like what?? Did you read my post? I clearly stated my family has attended many shows in the past. Cirque several times, Swan Lake, many Christmas shows, hell we even went to that horrible spoken word/ballet thing with the lady- not what we expected and not enjoyable! Do you really think 20-40 year olds want to see Christopher Cross and the Oak Ridge Boys? Maybe a handful that were raised on it so for nostalgia, but not the majority. I don't think anyone is saying try to bring in Aerosmith, but would Tesla be laughable? How about Rick Springfield for the ladies and Big Time Rush for kids/teens? All of those acts have/are playing local fairs and festivals. A few years back Great White played at a tiny little restaurant in Celina and last year they played in a parking lot of a Harley store. So did Jackyl. So they obviously aren't over a million to book. Many bands will do acoustic shows, the Foo Fighters did that a while back and only wanted to play in small venues that had certain acoustics. It was all unplugged with a full symphony, these were not places that made up for costs by selling alcohol or food, they were places like the PAC and tickets were still under $50 a piece. No guts? You're telling me that to get a decent musical act at the PAC I need to sponsor it? How interesting. I think I'll make a few calls tonight to friends and family that advertise their businesses in the programs and talk to them about their sponsorship.

That's exactly the kind of "pump up the PAC" sleezoid talk that I mentioned. So sorry for the suggestions peon. We'll keep on spending our entertainment dollars at The Embassy and local county fairs and their performing art centers, they appreciate feedback and show people they are listening by booking the acts and shows we want to see. Stomp was apparently too much for you (aside from the fact we saw it several times at The Embassy years ago when it was still fresh), so I can see begging for any type of current Broadway type show (not put on by the high school, although from what I understand they are better than any acts you bring in) would be "crazy talk" unless I bring it in myself by sponsoring it. Lol you're clueless.

You are kidding right? Current acts as in the old people love that crap. Top ten hits where? On the "old and boring" list?

Why can't the PAC just be successful doing what they've learned actually works? Do you folks tell everyone who runs a business here what to sell and how to run it? If I were them I wouldn't care about pleasing you. You're negative, ignorant and somehow truly believe someone actually values your opinions. Isolate yourselves from us normal people, PLEASE.
