PAC the House: Mission Statement
The mission of the PAC the House series is to present Bergen County audiences with an array of distinctive acts that may not appear on other area stages. The City of Hackensack and the Main Street Business Alliance, which co-sponsor the PAC the House series, carefully vet the performers to ensure a variety of cultural backgrounds and disciplines and to cultivate a hip ambiance for the redeveloping downtown. In the intimate Hackensack Performing Arts Center, the PAC the House series presents well-known performers as well as up-and-coming artists who promise to become new favorites.
