  • Group Violin - Mondays
  • Mixed Level Wheel Clay - Mondays & Thursdays
  • After School Clay - Mondays & Thursdays

MACademy Youth Theatre - Madagascar Jr

We have no option but to cancel Madagascar Jr this spring. We are contacting the publisher about moving the production to next season.
  • Assuming we can move the production, all current cast - regardless of age - will be given priority registration for the program and a reduced tuition rate. We will not plan to re-cast unless someone is no longer able to perform their role, but we may be adding more slots so that more kids can participate.
  • To minimize the loss of scripts, please return your script to MAC with your name on/in it. You can even leave it in the MAC mailbox. We'll pass the scripts back out to you next season.
  • If you have already purchased tickets to Madagascar please let us know which of these options you prefer: 1. Receive a refund; 2. Convert your ticket purchase to a donation to MAC. Please consider option 2 to help us offset the costs already incurred. 

Classes we're hoping to begin after April 4

We are currently scheduled to start the following classes after March 31, but we will be monitoring recommendations from the RCHD and CDC and will notify class participants about their specific classes. We will extend sessions as needed to make up classes.
