Close to You
Music of the Carpenters
Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with her unabashedly catchy pop music. The Carpenters’ beautiful, memorable love songs topped the Billboard charts with more than a dozen number one hits. Now singer Lisa Rock and her 6-piece band are bringing the music of The Carpenters back to the stage with their spot-on renditions of Carpenters classics with Close to You: The Music of The Carpenters.
Lisa Rock has been performing to sold-out crowds for years. She’s written more than 15 original concerts and cabarets that have been seen across the country. Now, Rock has arranged a 6-piece band, complete with back-up singers, and together they are dedicated to creating a Carpenters experience like no other. Rock’s amazing four octave range allows her to sing the hits like “We’ve Only Just Begun” and “Rainy Days and Mondays” in their original key, keeping the songs genuine and more recognizable for the audience. “When she hits the lower range of her marvelous voice,” notes critic Alan Bresloff, “if you close your eyes, you can see Karen Carpenter’s face.”
The main floor and loge seats, as well as all rest rooms, are handicapped accessible. Expanded wheelchair seating is available throughout the theater. Please make any accessibility needs you may have known at time of ticket purchase so we can provide the best accommodations.
Hearing Enhancement System
The Ashwaubenon PAC is equipped with a Hearing Loop System that provides an in-ear loudspeaker that cuts out a significant amount of background noise for audience members with hearing aids or cochlear implants.
How to Use the PAC’s Hearing Loops
Our special Hearing Loop receivers can be checked out free of charge at Coat Check. A driver’s license or credit card is held until the unit is returned after the show.
To utilize the hearing loop system, hearing aids must be equipped with a telecoil, or a T-coil. The T-coil in the hearing aid must be activated by an audiologist and switched on.
If you do not have a T-coil equipped hearing aid or cochlear implant but wish to benefit from the hearing loop system, a special receiver and earpiece can be checked out free of charge at Coat Check. A driver’s license or credit card is held until the unit is returned after the show.
