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.

The PAC’s inaugural season will officially kick off Oct. 30 and 31st with the dance performance “Who Dunnit,” presented by MCC’s Dance Company with special guests On Tap and Propel, followed by the Act I Musical Theatre’s production Hairspray, Nov. 13-22.

Free admittance is offered to patrons attending “Who Dunnit” in costume on Oct. 31.

MCC’s commitment to providing affordable arts and entertainment to the community couples the PAC shows with performances in the college’s newly remodeled MCC Theatre. The Theatre’s fall season launches with the family favorite Rumpelstiltskin earlier in October on the 10th.

Additional information about upcoming shows and events at MCC's Performing Arts Center and Theatre may be found online at mesacc.edu/pac and mesacc.edu/theatre-shows respectively.
