The MCC Theatre has been an important venue for the college’s performing arts program and a community landmark. For 30 years, the 270 seat theatre has fostered the budding careers of thousands of students, welcomed community forums and hosted the President of the United States. In 2012 the MCC Theatre underwent a large scale $2 million renovation. In addition to providing major architectural changes to the theatre’s lobby and west wing the renovations also updated many of the theatrical systems propelling the MCC Theatre into the 21st century of theatre technology. These upgrades give MCC students the opportunity to be trained in the use of new state of the art equipment; preparing them for careers in the current entertainment industry.
