MAC’s theater activities include the Ice House Theater Project’s multi-generational community productions of everything from Shakespeare and musicals to compelling dramas and locally-written plays. Our focus on building a strong community theater has included classes in playwriting, acting, directing, stage management and technical theater skills. Each summer MAC hosts a youth theater camp which culminates in a fully-staged production. The Ice House Theater project committee is always looking for new volunteers; please contact MAC at 304-258-2300 to find out how to get involved.
Theater at the Ice House
Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. Admission: $10, $8 MAC Members, $5 Students. Thursday, June 6th “Pay what you can” donations. Tickets at the door.
A Theatrical Smorgasboard
Directed by Brice Williams
March 29-31 and April 4-7, 2019
Each selection, involving from two to ten actors, is a complete story performed in ten minutes or less. The light-hearted fare is sometimes witty and sometimes touching but will always satisfy your appetite.
Directed by Chuck Walker
November 28 – December 2 and December 5 – 9, 2018
Set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the “third-smallest” town in the state, this show will bring you LOTS of holiday cheer (and laughter).
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf examines the complexities of the marriage of a middle-aged couple, Martha and George. Late one evening, after a university faculty party, they receive an unwitting younger couple, Nick and Honey, as guests, and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship.
