The MPAC Administrative offices are currently closed, but the staff is working remotely and full time, and will return calls and emails as soon as possible. The Box Office staff is also working remotely and returning messages and emails during typical box office hours of 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday-Friday. Due to the high volume of shows being postponed and rescheduled, you may experience a delay in having a box office associate get back to you.


Allison Larena, president and CEO, MPAC says, “The health and safety of our patrons, performers, volunteers and staff is paramount during this crisis. After consulting with our local officials, we believe the responsible action to take at this time is to suspend public events and to do our part to slow down the spread of this virus.
