Experience Music at the MAC
The Music at the MAC series features local musicians performing everything from Bluegrass to Bach. The MAC holds concerts in the beautifully renovated Anne Braitmayer Webb Theater and at various partner locations in Marion such as the Benjamin D. Cushing Community Center, the Marion Music Hall, the Robert O. Broomhead Bandstand at Island Wharf, Bicentennial Park, and more. Some performances also take place in the MAC galleries or outside on the lawn.
The MAC Theater features an up-to-date, fully equipped sound system and can accommodate approximately sixty people at each performance. In addition to comfortable theater seats, we offer limited cabaret-style seating, with audiences enjoying their own refreshments at reserved tables.
General Admission: Seating is usually first come, first serve. Doors will typically open one half hour before showtime.
Cabaret Tables: To request a cabaret table (for four guests), email firstname.lastname@example.org after purchasing your tickets. Not all music concerts offer cabaret seating.
Accessibility: There are three small steps plus a raised threshold to enter the Marion Art Center. There are four steps and a handrail at the entrance to the MAC Theater. Theater concerts usually include fully amplified sound. Guests may access the MAC lawn for outdoor concerts by way of the Pleasant Street sidewalk and pathway located on the south side of the building. The access to the lawn from the Main Street sidewalk has three wide stone steps. The Benjamin D. Cushing Community Center is fully accessible.
Audience: Performances are recommended for a general audience. All guests entering, regardless of age, must have a ticket unless the show is listed as free.
Food and Beverages: There are no concessions for sale at the Marion Art Center. Guests may bring their own beverages or refreshments to enjoy during shows at the MAC.
