Fall 2021 Update

Merrill Arts Center (MAC) plans to hold auditions in August for an October “by kids, for kids” production and a multi-generational holiday production. Staff will resume operations August 2. Please check back in August to sign up for auditions.

For information regarding classes at MAC or public performances for affiliate organizations please contact MAC partners directly:

As you can imagine, there are many moving parts at the arts center, and plans may need to change as the CDC and the MN Department of Health issue new recommendations. Please visit https://merrillartscenter.org for the latest news regarding activities at MAC.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to write me directly.

Thank you for your continued patience as we work through this process.

Thank you to MAC donors  for keeping the organization afloat while MAC was shuttered.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
