The SKyPAC In Bowlling Green
Welcome to the home of NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet in Bowling Green: SKyPAC. By the late 1990s, productions at Bowling Green’s top venues—the Capitol Theater on Fountain Square and the Van Meter Auditorium at Western Kentucky University—were attracting larger audiences. This prompted civic leaders in 2000 to form Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center, Inc. (SKyPAC) and subsequently accept funds from the state to construct a larger performing arts venue—which is SKyPAC. Today, the facility hosts a variety of performing arts events, including theater productions such as Cats and Mamma Mia, concerts, dance performances, and more.
