Sixteen years ago, Michael Flatley took Irish step dancing to new heights with his epic creation, “Lord of the Dance.” Generations of audiences – more than 60 million people from 68 countries – have experienced “Lord of the Dance” presented by MagicSpace Entertainment and Global Entertainment Group, and now the highest grossing Irish dance show returns to the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center.
With new costumes, technologically enhanced lighting and updated set designs, a cast of more than 40 dancers tells an epic love story based on mythical Irish folklore as Don Dorcha (Lord of Darkness) challenges the Lord of the Dance. Described by the New York Post as “fascinating, rewarding and above all, entertaining,” and by the Los Angeles Times as “a showpiece extravaganza,” “Lord of the Dance” is a mesmerizing blend of traditional and modern Celtic music and dance and an epic night of theatrical adventure.
Monty Python’s “Spamalot”

The funniest show on earth is back to taunt the Fox Cities for a second time! Winner of the 2005 Tony Award® for Best Musical, Monty Python’s “Spamalot,” the musical comedy sensation lovingly ripped off from the film classic “Monty Python and The Holy Grail,” now returns to spread laughter and cheer throughout the kingdom. “Spamalot” tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. But before they can find their grail, they’re taking a little side-trip to the fair city of Appleton. Flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen and show-stopping musical numbers are just a few of the reasons audiences everywhere are eating up Spamalot.
