The MAC offers a variety of plays with an array of challenging roles suitable for a wide demographic.

All casting is done through open auditions supervised by the play’s director. Audition times and dates are posted in advance on the website as well as on other area theater call boards and forums.  

Rehearsals usually run two to three hours, three days a week during non-business hours for six or seven weeks, depending on the coordination between the director and the cast. Participation in set and prop construction is encouraged but subject to an individual’s schedule and abilities. Performers are unpaid and all roles are non-Equity. 

The MAC Theater celebrates diversity and seeks people of all backgrounds regardless of age, race, creed, or national origin. All are welcome!

Please email to receive email announcements whenever auditions are scheduled. The MAC Theater does not sell or provide email lists to any third parties.

Curses! The hounds are out and mystery is about. The MAC Theater is looking for five daring actors to take on multiple (nearly 40 – be brave!) roles in Ken Ludwig’s hilarious Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery. Ludwig’s send up of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles, turns it into a genius theatrical adventure of humor and horror. Roles will include the famous Sherlock Holmes, the elementary Watson, and several others both male and female. All roles are gender fluid. The action is fast paced, as are costume changes, and strong comedic reflexes are encouraged. Come one, come all, to the Marion Art Center at 80 Pleasant St., Marion.

Auditions will be cold readings from the script. Please email director Kate Fishman with questions or for an advance copy of the sides at Typically, rehearsals are three times a week and are scheduled with the actors’ conflicts considered. Actors must be available for the entire tech week, 7/30 through 8/2, and for all performance dates 8/4-6, 8/11-13, and 8/18-20, inclusive.

This production will also need at least two stage techs to affect the fast scene changes, as well as set builders and a stage manager. If you’ve ever wanted to get involved in theater but weren’t ready to be on stage, there are plenty of opportunities for you at MAC Theater!
