A Message From The Artistic Director


Dear Friends,

Writing this annual greeting to you, I find myself so completely struck with gratitude for the home the Mac-Haydn Theatre has given so many artists for more than 50 years. And welcoming these thousands of artists has been YOU—loyal, supportive, and above all, determined to keep the magic alive year after year. I’m also incredibly grateful to be able to report that we made it through what seemed an insurmountable crisis with the success of the 2021 season. So, first, a big thank you for making the impossible possible once again.

Together we have faced the many challenges of the last two years and have landed squarely on our feet to be able to plan for the 2022 season. We have so many exciting things happening in 2022 and we cannot wait to share another amazing season of exceptional music theatre together—especially from our new seats!

A very happy patron stopped by the office last summer and said, “Wow! The Mac didn’t just come out of the pandemic, the Mac exploded out of the Pandemic!” It meant the world to the entire staff to hear these remarks all summer long and it truly kept us going day in and day out. It has also inspired us to work even harder this winter to make 2022 the most spectacular season yet!

My Best Always,

John Saunders
Artistic Director

Volunteer

We hear it a lot: "I don't know how you do it!"

Well, we don't do it alone. Our volunteers who you see ushering, in the food booth and coffee house are the backbone of our theatre and we are always looking for more.

    Here are some specific things our volunteers assist with.
  • Housing: Maintenance and setup for our artists and technical team.
  • Hosting: We are often looking for additional space for our talented and interesting teams. Please fill out our Housing Information Form if you are interested in hosting an artist for part or all of the summer. We will work with you to find a good fit.
  • Distribution: Rack cards and posters around Columbia County.
  • Cars: we have a small fleet that are stored for the winter. These need to be started up and taken for service and check-ups.
  • Copying: Scripts, inserts, and other incidental things. It's a very necessary but time consuming process.
  • Lawn Mowing and Gardening: Having some help with our extensive properties would be wonderful.

Please contact us at jrodgers@machaydntheatre.org to inquire further about becoming a volunteer.
