Performing Arts

Each season we have a six concert Performing Arts Series in our beautiful 279 seat Zona Gale Theatre.  Reserved season tickets and individual tickets are available.

The Gale Singers community choir performs two concerts each year, one in winter and one in spring.

The Zona Gale Young People's Theatre produces one or two full length plays each year, and also offers two summer workshops for area youth, culminating in a series of short plays.

Please join us for PCA's Brown Bag Lunch Series!  Guest artists selected for this noon time series offer informal, informational presentations on a variety of topics.  

The PCA facilities are for rent.  We occasionally feature special performances by area musicians, community groups, and other performers.

Visual Arts

Our Visual Arts activities are extensive.  Month long exhibits in the Drury Gallery from September through May feature not only local artists, but also national and occasionally international artists who work in many mediums. 
 
We also partner with Tivoli at Divine Savior Healthcare here in Portage and sponsor four three-month exhibits. 

Art that Blooms is a wonderful sensory event that comes together for two days in June, featuring art, poetry, and floral arrangements!
 
Our Photos & Poetry in the Foyer competition also runs from September through May with a different theme each month.  The winner is chosen by popular vote. 

Be sure to check out the Sand County Fine Arts Festival, arriving annually in Portage each July!
