Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Wednesday by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 982-2787 or online at ticketmaster.com.

Tickets for the Lambeau Field dates also can be purchased at the Packers Ticker Office, while the Fox Cities PAC engagement can be purchased in person at the center's ticket office and online at foxcitiespac.com.
Lombardi is played by Dan Lauria and the play was authored by Wisconsin native Eric Simonson.
"Tony and I are very pleased to find a way to bring the ‘Lombardi' Broadway company to Green Bay and the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center for this series of very special performances," said Kirmser. "There were thousands who made the trek to see the play during our Broadway run, and we are now looking forward to bringing ‘The Coach' home to Wisconsin for what will be some memorable nights in July."
