As always, you will enjoy free parking for your bus, limo, van or cars.

You don’t have to travel far to have a thrilling and memorable trip. We offer a full bar and comprehensive catering services for banquets, receptions or cocktail gatherings, and are always happy to help arrange every detail of your private events before or after the show.

Students & Youth Groups

Bring excitement and wonder to the youth in your life with a field trip to the MAC. You’ll love watching their eyes light up as they see how fun learning can be. Add a pre- or post-show Q&A session to enhance children’s educational experience. Detailed study guides are also available for many performances, which introduce the material and offer historical/cultural context to aid in understanding what they are seeing.
