Mesa Community College (MCC) will host an Open House in celebration of the completion of its new 462-seat Performing Arts Center (PAC). The free event is open to the public and will be held on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at MCC’s Southern and Dobson campus (1833 W. Southern Ave., Mesa). Light refreshments will be provided.
MCC’s talented students will provide a sneak preview of music, dance and musical theatre that will regularly showcase in this exciting state-of-the-art-venue. Students and faculty will lead guided tours which will include behind the scenes areas such as performance classrooms, music practice rooms, and the scene shop, in addition to the main stage.
“We are excited to be able to open our doors to our community to showcase the talents of our vocal, instrumental and dance students in this long-awaited world-class venue,” said Sue Anne Lucius, Chair of MCC’s Music Department.
