Make your experience even better at the MAC.

Getting The Most Out Of Your Visit

At the MAC, we are pleased to provide an exhilarating experience with the best programming in the area while maintaining outstanding customer service and accessibility including free parking. Along with our extensive renovations, we’ve added new features like a beautiful expanded lobby for you to gather and enjoy a drink at the bar before the show and during intermission.


The MAC’s VIP Experience is the perfect guest experience, featuring a private, pre-show area where you can enjoy complimentary champagne, beer, wine, soda, light sandwiches, cheese and crackers, with dessert and coffee at intermission for an additional $30 per person on select shows. Click HERE for more information.

You can browse exhibitions in the new Cleve Carney Art Gallery, and view some of the College’s permanent art collection showcasing important works by prominent artists such as Andy Warhol, Robert Motherwell and many others, on display in the lobby and throughout the campus.

When it’s time for your performance to start, feel free to bring your drinks in with you, but remember that no cameras or video recorders are allowed inside. If you will be late, you may not receive your original seat. To keep you comfortable on chilly days, we also offer a free coat check.
