Introducing the “Pay What You Can” Initiative
Pay What You Can

On August 7 at 7pm, The Mac-Haydn will be hosting our first-ever PAY WHAT YOU CAN performance!

From its inception in 1969, the Mac-Haydn has made accessibility to the arts a core focus of our mission. We believe that equity and inclusion start with access. With our highest ticket price at $45.00, we set the cost barrier lower than any other professional musical theater producer in the region.

However, we want to do more to provide access to the experience of live theater, which is why we’re introducing the PAY WHAT YOU CAN initiative. For one night only, ticket prices don’t exist – you decide what to contribute to attend the performance.

PAY WHAT YOU CAN will start during our run of the Pulitzer Prize winning musical Next To Normal on Sunday, August 7 at 7:00pm.

Patrons who wish to PAY WHAT YOU CAN may do one of the following:
Call the box office from 3pm onward on Sunday, August 7.
Visit the box office from 6pm onward on Sunday, August 7.

For the remainder of the season we will offer a PAY WHAT YOU CAN performance for each Mainstage show. Details of that performance will be released closer to the performance date.

Please note that this performance will have a limited number of tickets available for the PAY WHAT YOU CAN initiative. Patrons MUST PROVIDE PROOF OF VACCINATION and photo ID upon entry. MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL PATRONS.
